  1. Why do they not connect the 5 to the 1 as half of the trams ‘1’ stop at Eminönü? Now to go to Marmaray people from 5 will have to cross the traffic of the bridge and change for 1 stop to tram 1… Make 5 Aksaray (or Bağcilar) – Alibeyköy and 1 Kabataş – Bağcilar and no more trams terminating at Eminönü

    • T1 has a very heavy traffic, which would prevent T5 to enter to line until Sirkeci. And that would need a huge change in road traffic between first stop of T5 and Eminonu stop of T1. Though the distance between Marmaray and T5 is not tiring, I guess, in long term, they’ll try to do what you said..

    • Thank you for the response 🙂
      I hope they will do it
