Funicular Taksim-Kabatas (F1 Taksim - Kabataş)
The lower station of the F1 line of the Istanbul metro is located next to the Kabatas ferry terminal ( on the map ).
In fact, this is not even a metro in the usual sense of the word, but a funicular, hidden underground and the entire line consists of two stations.
The branch operates from 6:30 am to midnight, travel can be paid with either a token or an IstanbulKart transport card.
The length of the line is 594 meters, the elevation difference between the stations is 74 meters, the travel time is about three minutes.
The upper station is Taksim Square.
The line does not have a rich history, such as Tunnel, since it was opened in 2006, so everything here is done in a modern spirit.
The mechanisms provide the movement of four-car trains with a maximum weight of 150 tons, moving up to 7500 passengers per hour.
The main wheels are painted with autumn leaves.
