Line M7, officially referred to as the M7 Kabataş–Mahmutbey line (Turkish: M7 Kabataş–Mahmutbey metro hattı) is a rapid transit line of the İstanbul Metro system on the European part of Istanbul, Turkey.

Currently, it is under construction. On December 20, 2013, the line was commissioned to Kalyon Group for construction.[3] The groundbreaking ceremony was held on February 9, 2014. The line will be 24.5-kilometre (15.2 mi) long with 19 stations, and is expected to go into service in 2018.[4]

The M7-line will connect eight districts of Istanbul Province, namely Beyoğlu, Beşiktaş, Şişli, Kağıthane, Eyüp, Gaziosmanpaşa, Esenler and Bağcılar. It is projected that 300 cars of driverless metro trains will transport about one million riders daily. The total travel time will be 31.5 minutes between the end stations. The line will cost Turkish lira symbol 8x10px.png 3.7 billion (approx. US$ 1 billion).[5]
