Stating that the public transportation in our districts was carried out by 262 vehicles before this study, Mayor Mustafa Çelik said, “The average age of these vehicles was 11 years. Vehicles providing transportation service were different from each other. Some vehicles were for 14 people, some vehicles were for 19 people. In order to carry excess passengers, some vehicles had undergone license amendments. This created unfair competition. And most importantly, 262 vehicles serving the districts were more than needed. It was possible to provide transportation services with fewer vehicles and in a better quality way. When the number of vehicles is too high compared to the number of passengers, vehicle owners make money. kazanHe complained of not being able to pay and was constantly asking for salary increases or support. In summary, operators and passengers complained about old and out-of-date vehicles. For the solution of the issue, Transportation Inc. and our relevant bureaucrats did a very detailed study. Long negotiations were held with the vehicle owners and finally a result was reached that would please both the operators, our citizens and us. With the transformation and re-planning, the number of vehicles from 262 was reduced to 164. Some operators bought a vehicle as a partner. The operators united under the roof of the cooperative. Thus, as the number of vehicles decreased, the profitability of the operators, whose expenses decreased and passengers increased, increased. All vehicles became standard with the number of 2017 models, 19+1 seats. With the renewal and standardization of the vehicles, service quality, passenger comfort and passenger safety have also increased. From now on, our citizens in our districts will travel with new vehicles. Drivers will wear uniforms and serve with approved badges. Vehicles with camera recording and vehicle tracking system will be monitored remotely from the fleet management center. Thus, self-control will be achieved. These vehicles will also have a panic button, an application that is the first in Turkey. Passengers and the driver will be able to make an emergency notification to the fleet management center with the panic button in case of an emergency. Vehicles will also be switched to electronic payment system. Our citizens will be able to travel to the districts by using a single electronic card, and they will be able to get on the buses and the rail system in the city with the same card. With the same card, he will also benefit from the bicycle prompt. From now on, 11 district centers and 393 neighborhoods of these districts will be transported with the same standard, same safety and same comfort with 2017 model vehicles,” he said.
