Istanbul Metro and LRT
The Marmaray Project was planned in 1985 as part of the overall traffic system of Istanbul, and the Metro Project currently under construction is another and very important part of this system. The Marmaray Project will be the west/east corridor, whereas the Metro Project will form the north/south corridor on the European side.
In the future and after the two projects have been completed, Yenikapı station will therefore become one of the most important transfer stations in Istanbul on the European side, while Üsküdar will have the same importance and perform the same function on the Asian side. Both stations will offer transfer facilities for bus passengers, ferry traffic passengers, passengers using light rail trains (LRT), tramlines and pedestrians.
