Intercity train services start on Monday on 12 routes.
Some of the intercity train services, which were suspended more than a year ago, will restart on 12th of July, Monday. The train services that will start are as follows:
|Van Golu Express||Ankara- Kirikkale-Kayseri-Sivas-Malatya-Elazig-Mus-Tatvan|
|Kurtalan Express||Ankara- Kirikkale-Kayseri-Sivas-Malatya-Diyarbakir-Batman-Kurtalan|
|4 Eylul Mavi||Ankara- Kirikkale-Kayseri-Sivas-Malatya|
The biggest surprise among all is 4 Eylul Mavi. The train is again an overnight service between Ankara and Malatya with couchette wagons.
The tickets are on sale for all services until end of this month, covering the regional fest. The ticket prices are not changed, which were last updated in late 2019.
While 12 new services start, remaining 6 intercity train services seem to wait a bit more. These trains are:
- Touristic Dogu Express, giving service between Ankara and Kars allowing 2-3 hours long city excursions at some stations on way.
- 6 Eylul, 17 Eylul and Karesi expresses which give service on Izmir-Balikesir-Bandirma line.
- Toros Express which was giving service on Adana-Konya line, where engineering works continue to upgrade the line.
- Bogazici Express which run for some time between Arifiye and Ankara.
