Stations: Stations/Stops are important connection points for Metrobus system, passengers and other public transportation systems in the region. Providing an above average service and distinguishing Metrobus system from other public transportation systems, stations integrate the Metrobus with the local environment and improve it. Because Metrobus systems offer service in high demand corridors. The number of passengers using a Metrobus station would be much more than the number of passengers that make use of typical bus lines. Consequently, Metrobus stations are more important with regard to traditional public transporation systems. The services provided in the Metrobus stations can be listed as follows

  •  Announcement system
  •  Baffle Plate
  •  Information board
  • Buffets
  • AVM (Automatic Vending Machine)
  • Return validators
  • Security
  •  Elevator
  • Platform for the disabled

Separated Lanes: Like the rail systems working in a track, Metrobus vehicles also operate in a way separated from traffic.

  • Separated lanes are the most important factor for speed and safety.
  • Separated lanes are the most explicit cost item.
  • Separated lanes are very important in terms of constitution of the identity and image of system, and of attracting potential passengers. 


Vehicles: Vehicles are one of the most important system components that bring the speed, capacity, environment-friendliness and comfort together. They are the Metrobus components that render the perception of Metrobus identity both by users and non-users. Vehicles are the components in which the passengers spend most of their time, and in which impressions of passengers originate. For the ones who are not passengers, vehicles are the most visible component of the system.

Toll Gates: At the 45 stations of the Metrobus line, there are 366 toll gates and 54 toll gates for the disabled passengers. 


Schedules: Metrobus schedule plan is prepared in summers and winters based on the journey demands. Apart from that, launching a new line and the change of journey characteristics are the important factors enabling a schedule change.
