The T5 Eminönü–Alibeyköy tram line (Turkish: T5 Eminönü–Alibeyköy tramvay hattı) is a tram line currently under construction in the European part of Istanbul, Turkey.

The line will be 10.1 km (6.3 mi) long with 14 stations each 60 m (200 ft) of length, and is expected to go into service in 2019.[1] 30 trains will carry up to 114,000 passengers a day. Its route mostly follows the eastern coastline of the Golden Horn, and is built on the bank next to the existing street. In some places, it crosses the water on piles. The total travel time will be 35 minutes. Electrification is from power lines embedded in the ground between the tracks to avoid visual pollution, a difference from other tram lines in the city, which have traditional overhead wires suspended from roadside posts.[2]

Stations and connections[edit]

The 14 stations and their connections to other lines are as following:[2]
