First Attempts For Tram in Istanbul

The first attempt t build a tram line in İstanbul that could be determined was the efforts of Rüstem bey, a Meclis-i Maabir member. Rüstem bey stated in a letter dated april 14, 1868, that the invented a single track transportation syste, which is called tram, and it could carry passenger and goods for a reasonable price and request concession.

Even Rüstem bey was given a concession; the single track system was not implemented.
