Istanbul | Episode 3 Part 2
Almost all public transport in Istanbul uses a single payment system called Istanbul kart.
The new Marmaray commuter rail connects large sections of the city including the European and Asian sides of Istanbul via a tunnel underneath the Bosphorus strait.
The Istanbul Metrobus is a bus rapid transport system that is 41.5 km long and has 35 stations.
The Tünel has been in continuous use since 1875 and is one of the oldest Funiculars in the world. It is also the second-oldest subterranean urban rail line in the world.
Istanbul has had public trams since 1872. They were horse drawn before switching to electric in 1912.
The Tram system reached peak popularity in the 1950s with over 108 million passengers and 270 shuttles in 1956.
By 2012, the modern tram system has a daily ridership of 100,000 and makes over 400 journeys a day.
