Istanbul to get new mini metro

Istanbul’s metro system will soon feature a new “mini-metro” that will ultimately connect the neighborhoods of Levent and Aşiyan, Istanbul Metropolitan Mayor Kadir Topbaş has announced.

The project will be built within two years and will connect the Aşiyan neighborhood, which is along the Bosphorus, to the main Istanbul metro line via a 730-meter funicular that will connect to the end of the mini-metro line at Hisarüstü, outside Boğaziçi University.

The new metro will be able to transport up to 10,000 passengers per hour, Topbaş told daily Hürriyet.
