High speed trains, that have been giving service until Eryaman in Ankara, have started departing from Ankara YHT station starting from today.
After the train crash at Ankara in last December, Ankara-Eryaman stretch was closed to HST traffic as signalization works continued. As of today morning, HSTs restarted departing from Ankara YHT station.
Together with the Marmaray project commissioned on previous day, it’s now possible to travel from Ankara city center to Istanbul city center without any interchange.
Though there’s no official statement, the signalization works between Ankara YHT station and Sincan is expected to be completed.
TCDD Tasimacilik restarted selling HST tickets 15 days prior to departure.
