  1. Dear Sirs, is there a train connection between Tatvan / Van and Kars? If yes, what are the timetables, frequencies and routes?


    • There’s not a direct connection. You can use Vangolu and Dogu trains together, if you don’t mind the long travel time. See timetables under travel menu.


  2. Hi. is there a train from:
    Ankara to Cappadacio
    Antalya to Fethiye
    Fethiye to Pammukale


    • Please check touristic routes at Rail Turkey for travel by rail to Cappadocia and Pamukkale. Unfortunately, there’s no rail connection to Antalya and Fethiye.


  3. Do you know, when train from Sofia will finish at Sikreci station and when train to Ankara will depart from Haydarpasa or Söğütlüçeşme?


    • Not clear yet. Haydarpasa is expected to be ready within a couple of months. Sirkeci will be technically possible in March, however it’ll be an admnistrative decision to depart Sofia train from Sirkeci.


    • Do you think, that in 3rd may Sofia train will finish in Sikerci? If not, i will have to go by Marmaray or it shuttle bus will still ride?

      Cheers from Poland


  4. Hi, do you know why i can’t buy ticket for Pendik-Ankara (Eryaman) train for date after 9th March. Normally, today i could buy ticket for 12th March, but last date when i can buy ticket is 9th March.


    • It seems there’ll be a change.. Tickets are still for 9th of March. Most probably, signalization will soon be completed and Ankara trains will restart departing from Ankara Central Station. They may be waiting for final confirmation.


    • Maybe, but Marmaray starts at 10th March and maybe according to this, YHT will start from Halkalı or Sö….. (i don’t know how to write it xD). I heard that they have already set map of stops in Marmaray EMUs and the map says, that it will be possible to change to YHT at Halkalı, Bakirköy, Sö…. and Bostanci
