Izmir
Izmir Metro (opened in 2000) currently runs from Hatay (Ucyol stop in the southern side) to Bornova (north-eastern side); the track combines underground, elevated and ground level sections.
The systems has been costantly extended and the first phaseS (Ucyol-Bornova, Bornova-Evka 3) are going to be followed by many further developments (Ucyol-Fahrettin Altay; Halkapinar-Otogar; Fahrettin Altay-DEU; Ucyol–Buca–D.E. Universitesi is Aliaga–Menderes suburban railway upgraded at metro standards). In the next future it will be particulary remarkable the new north-south axis of the system, connecting Aliaga district (where an oil refinery and its port are located) to Menderes (serving Adnan Menderes Airport).
