Adana is one of the largest and most populated cities in Turkey (population about 1,5M). Adana Metro is a light metro line, known in the local language as Adana Metrosu. It's been under construction for about 20 years. Beginning of construction was in 1988. In March 2009 some services were opened for what we understand it was a test of the system and after a little period Metrosu was closed to be opened definitely in May 2010 with all metro sections fully operative.
Adana metro is a rapid transist with only one line and 13 stations that crosses Adana from North to South along 13,9 kms. In some sections of the way, metrosu circulates underground, some others elevated and some others at ground level.
There is planned another line extension in the North East that will add 9,3 more kilometers to the system and 7 new stations. They are also planning to reuse some old railway to expand the system with connections to a suburban rail.
Journey Time is around 15-21 minutes. Stations: Hastane, Anadolu Lisesi, Huzurevi, Mavi Bulvar, Yurt, Yeşilyurt, Fatih, Vilayet, İstiklal, Kocavezir, Hürriyet, Cumhuriyet, Akıncılar
6:00 to 21:00 from monday to saturday.
