E5 highway details and importance in public transportation

The E5 highway is one of the most important highways in Istanbul, as it connects different districts to each other and is a major artery for traffic as the road is about 50 kilometers long, and the famous metrobus line that connects the European and Asian parts of the city passes in the middle of it, in addition to public buses that provide a convenient transportation service for citizens despite the traffic jams on this famous road, it is a starting point for many other means of public transport such as the metro, multi-numbered buses and school buses and therefore, the E5 highway is not only important in the daily life of the citizens of Istanbul, but also a major pillar in the city's public transportation system.

The system can record the tolls for every car passing through Turkey's highways, thus making traffic control in cities easier than ever before and of course, HGS provides the necessary facilities for car travel in Turkey, which enhances the speed and safety of transportation in big cities like Istanbul.
