Izmir has returned to the tangle of transportation: Metropolitan, electronic fee collecting crisis has not exceeded the day 10. Free access to the paper ticket system, minus the balancing of the citizen's head to be removed
The crisis experienced in the electronic toll collection system on June 1 could not be overcome in the past 10 days. The damage caused by free boarding in metro buses, ferries and İZBAN reached millions of liras. The City Card Company, which lost the tender, kept the Metropolitan Municipality and Kartek Company, which received the tender problematic, while the Metropolitan Municipality addressed Kent Kart as the responsible of the events. The increase in the number of citizens benefiting from public transportation for free has already doubled the daily loss of the ESHOT General Directorate. The fact that the citizen can benefit from public transportation without loading the balance on his card by saying "somehow free of charge" has also brought some radical decisions to the agenda. Concentrating on the new program, ESHOT General Directorate officials started an effort to compensate a little bit of the damage caused by free boarding. The system that is being worked on will have a cold shower effect on citizens who use public transportation for free because they have their cards read at the metro, bus, ferry and İZBAN toll booths.
The software, which records the free rides in the system as a negative balance, will collectively deduct the free rides made so far from the plus balance when the balance is loaded on the card. While the municipality will compensate the damage it has suffered in this way, even if it is a bit, the collective drops in the transportation cards will also demoralize the citizens. For example, a citizen who adds 20 lira to his city card will be able to fall back to zero balance when previous free rides are deducted. İzmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Aziz Kocaoğlu will make the final decision on whether this system will be implemented or not. Public transportation regulations will not be limited to this. Following President Kocaoğlu's statement, "We can temporarily switch to paper tickets at critical points", from today on, paper tickets will be applied in order to prevent free boarding in public transportation vehicles across the city and to encourage citizens to load balance on their card. For citizens who have insufficient balance on Kentkart, drivers in buses; In metro, ferry and İZBAN stations, paper tickets will be sold by both the toll booths and security guards. Passengers who will board public transportation with a paper ticket will not be able to benefit from the 90-minute application, so the remedy will be to load the balance to the city card in order to prevent further financial damage. Thus, free ride will be prevented. The paper ticket application will end after the system returns to normal. When this is the case, the bill for the chaos in the electronic fee collection system will again be billed to the citizen.
