It was reported that the disruptions experienced after some of the machinists in İZBAN, which provided suburban transportation between Aliağa and Menderes, have been largely eliminated. In the written statement made by İZBAN AŞ, the following views were stated: “In İZBAN AŞ, which is a suburban operator on the Aliağa-Cumaovası line, the disruptions that started with the fact that a group of mechanics did not take the trains in the morning shift were largely eliminated. After the commissioning of ESHOT buses, TCDD trains were also put into operation on the line. Thanks to the studies and measures taken, the rate of operation increased up to 75 percent, while the number of trains on the line was increased to 12. During the peak hours on the İZBAN line, 17 train sets were available at the same time. On the other hand, in order to make train sets move more intensely, ring trips between Menemen and Aliağa were activated. Thanks to all the studies, the frequency of trains was reduced to 15 minutes. ”
ADDITIONAL BUS TIMES ARE LOCATED In the written statement made by the Izmir Metropolitan Municipality, it was stated that additional bus services were put in the stations after the machinists in IZBAN stopped working. In the statement, it is stated that starting from 16.00, there will be bus services between Çiğli-Halkapınar and Gaziemir District Garage-Cumaovası station in 10-minute periods, and buses will be operated between Gaziemir District Garage and Halkapınar every 15 minutes. It is noted that until the driver problem at İZBAN AŞ is resolved, İZBAN trains will be operated temporarily between Cumaovası-Menemen and ESHOT buses will run between İZBAN stations every 15 minutes.
