Bozüyük YHT railway station

Bozüyük HSR station, short for Bozüyük High Speed Rail station, (Turkish: Bozüyük YHT Garı short for Bozüyük Yüksek Hızlı Tren Garı) is a railway station on the Ankara–Istanbul high-speed railway just south of Bozüyük, Turkey. The station opened on 25 July 2014, along with the Eskişehir-Istanbul portion of the high-speed railway and is for the moment one of three railway stations in Turkey to be dedicated to high-speed rail. Bozüyük YHT has three tracks served by two platforms and two tracks in the middle for passing trains.

Prior to the opening of the high-speed railway, the now indefinitely closed Bozüyük station, located in the center of the town, was serviced by many trains running from Istanbul to Ankara and points beyond. This older railway station is expected to re-open to passenger traffic, once the construction of the Marmaray commuter rail system in Istanbul is finished and Intercity train services resume.
