STRONG DEMAND FROM CITIZENS: THE FIRST MUSIC BROADCAST STARTED ON THE KIZILAY-KORU LINE
EGO General Management cooperated with Ankara University Faculty of Communication (ILEF) to broadcast classical music by popular demand of citizens.
EGO General Management Department Head Yurtalp Erdoğdu said that he plans to gradually implement classical music broadcasting on the Kızılay-Koru line as a pilot application at first, and has given the following information:
“Our main goal is to provide safe, fast and comfortable transportation for our citizens. We carry on all our work day and night with this awareness. Other than that, we wanted to do a few activities that would help out the fatigue and stress of the day when transferring our passengers to the stations. For this, we thought of music whose healing properties have been scientifically proven. As a result of joint work with the Faculty of Communication of Ankara University, we have launched an application for streaming music in our stations. We started the application on our Kızılay-Koru line in the first place. We want to expand it gradually. The opinions of our citizens on this issue via social networks and Başkent 153 are also very valuable to us.
Citizens who expressed their joy of traveling with classical music also expressed their thoughts with the following words:
Nature traveler: “I found the app cool. I think it’s an app that makes people feel very comfortable while traveling.

Dawn of Nisanur: “I usually read books while traveling, but classical music was even more relaxing. So time goes by faster. We can either read a book or listen to music on the subway, so it was a successful and beautiful application.
