Traffic Problem to End by 2016: Istanbul Mayor

A new plan will solve Istanbul’s mass transportation problems by 2016, according to Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topba┼č.

“We [are planning] 641 kilometers of subway and rail systems. When we complete [this plan], transportation in Istanbul will be based largely on subways and rail systems. In 2016 the residents of Istanbul will no longer have traffic problems. By that time, most of the line will be completed, new buses will be provided and minibus systems will change. Also taxis will work more systematically. Urban transportation will become much easier. Then it will not be necessary to talk about transportation so much,” he said.
