İZBAN, İzmir‘s suburban train line, operates Metro-style trains from Selçuk, Tepeköy, Cumaovası and Torbalı in the south via Adnan Menderes Airport (Havalimanı station), Alsancak and Basmane railway stations, Karşıyaka, Çiğli and Menemen to Aliağa in the north.
Trains run as frequently as every 12 minutes at peak times. There are not trains between the 01:11 and 05:47 departures, but other than in the middle of the night, you can travel easily and cheaply all day among İzmir’s major transport termini: Adnan Mendres Airport, Alsancak Gar(intercity train station), Basmane Gar(regional train station) and, by transferring to the Metro at Basmane, to the important İzmir city-center districts of Çankaya, Konak (main square & ferryboat docks) and Üçyol(for buses to Alaçatı and Çeşme).
The İZBAN-line trip from Cumaovası to Aliağa takes 75 minutes.
