Abstract

Turkey started the High-Speed Rail (HSR) services in 2009 and has four operating lines with three more lines expected to serve in the near future. This study aims to investigate the potential competitiveness of HSR against bus and airway alternatives in the future lines (Ankara-Bursa, Ankara-Izmir and Ankara-Sivas).
