Deputy Mayor of the Metropolitan Municipality Zihni Aldırmaz stated that natural gas is a new sector in Adana and said that they want engineers from Adana to work on this issue.
Explaining that they are aiming to make important changes in public transport, Aldırmaz continued:
“We are planning to gather minibuses, buses and metro under one roof. We will give a share to the vehicle owners accordingly and the vehicles will be on the traffic as needed. We have come a long way in this regard. The trades will earn more and the traffic will be relaxed. We are also planning to transform the city buses to run on natural gas. We appear with companies that make renovations in this regard. If our buses run on natural gas, fuel costs will decrease significantly. "
