Text description provided by the architects. A western district and villages terminal was designed in the west of the city, Kayseri. The idea of creating a district terminal came up due to the fact that the transportation access difficulty of the existing travel agencies in the area. Besides, the traffic density caused by the transportation vehicles in the city center is an another reason.

The structure is designed to be located on the local road which is 8 km away from the city center where the new intercity bus terminal also exists. Convenience of the linkage to the new local road ,the connection with the intercity bus terminal and the existence of the rail system near the city were the reasons of choose for this area.

The premier design criteria of the building is creating different foyers under the same structure to the passengers. For this reason transparent foyers are lodged on a massive blockwall, surface from two different directions in a ‘Z’ form .The perception of the platforms is improved by the transparent foyers.
