A fast tram (T1) was put in service in 1992 on standard gauge track with modern cars, connecting Sirkeci with Topkapi. A final extension to Kabatas was opened in June 2006. I’ve taken a ride between Aksaray and Kabatas and back to Laleli.
The line has 24 stations on a length of 14 km. Service is operated with low-floor Bombardier Flexity Swift trams. An entire trip takes 42 minutes.
