The decision for the giant bus station has been announced Ankara Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tuna announced that the load of the Ankara Intercity Bus Terminal has decreased with the widespread use of high-speed trains and planes in intercity travels, so it is no longer possible to build a new bus terminal in Mamak district.
In his statement, Tuna reminded that a new intercity bus terminal was planned to be built in Mamak in the past. Pointing out that the transportation preferences of the citizens have changed as a result of the investments made by the government in railway and air transportation, Tuna said, “It is no longer possible to make the intercity bus terminal to Mamak. Our citizens now travel mainly by high speed train and plane. Therefore, there is a decrease in the number of buses entering AŞTİ. It is possible for AŞTİ to continue where it is located. Since it has a connection with the rail system where it is currently located, there is a convenience for passengers. " said.
BUS OWNERS WILL NOT WANT TO MOV
Stating that the owners of the bus business in AŞTİ do not want to move, as well as the citizens, Tuna said: “The citizen is satisfied, there is no problem. The tradesmen there want to continue here. There is no problem in terms of traffic as the number of buses decreases day by day. What's our problem? No work is done just to carry it or to do sports. There has to be a need, a new investment, a new expense and a new expense for its relocation. So what will happen here we moved there? This is a land belonging to AOÇ, we pay rent there to AOÇ. After you move AŞTİ from there, you cannot do anything else. The allocation of the rate has been allocated as an intercity bus terminal, leased. Now, when we remove it, the situation will go to completely different situations in accordance with the law of AOÇ. Due to the versatile parameters, we decided that it would be best for AŞTİ to continue on site. "
