With the increase of YHT flights, the General Directorate of TCDD Taşımacılık AŞ, which provides an additional capacity of 4 thousand 542 per day and a total of 16 thousand 92, significantly reduces the travel time not only to the cities reached by YHTs, but also to nearby cities with YHT plus combined transportation.

The highest demand for bus-connected combined transportation of high-speed trains, which have served 57 million passengers to date, has been on the Ankara-Eskişehir-Bursa, Konya-Eskişehir-Bursa lines.
