Reaction to Kocaeli tram free of charge from the Chamber of Minibuses and Busmen: Mustafa Kurt, President of the Kocaeli Chamber of Minibuses and Busers, said that it was difficult for the busmen to take bread to their homes because the tram was free.
Chairman of the Kocaeli Minibus and Bus Coaches Chamber, Mustafa Kurt, made a statement about the tram, which started its flights last week and will provide free service until 15 July. Stating that 2180 people are doing public transportation services in Kocaeli, Kurt stated that 650 - 700 thousand people use public transportation per day. Stating that the buses provide a difficult service, Kurt said, “The earnings of our older tradesmen were in much better situations than today. In those years, no carriage was free, and vehicle capital was lower, but we loved our job much more beautifully. As technology has improved in recent days, as business expenses and free boarding have increased, this business is no longer attractive. At the beginning, vehicle capital increased very much. ”
“THE CREDIT OF THE VEHICLES HAVE BEEN AWAYED FOR THE PAID”
Emphasizing that the tradesmen have difficulty in making money, Kurt said, “For a zero vehicle we bought today, we repay 260.000 TL with a 60-month loan as 380.000 TL. Until the vehicle's credit payment is finished, zero vehicles are scrapped after 10 years of scrapping. It is clearly seen that shopkeepers have difficulty in taking bread. ” Nowhere in free practice to be stated that Kurt Turkey, "they should receive a free water 4 times a day. This is a very absurd application. It is a pity that it will bring bread to this shopkeeper's house. ” Expressing his opinion on the price of the tram not yet announced, Mustafa Kurt said, "The tram fee should be the same as the city tariff."
“We have no strength to endure”
Expressing that it is wrong for municipalities to compete with private affiliates by investing more than necessary, Kurt said, “Always transportation, always transportation. It's free now. We have no strength to bear. It is unacceptable that the tram is free for 1 month. Tradesmen were left as victims and they started the tram as if they were smuggling goods out of the fire. ”
