We were receiving many complaints, such as grinding the windows and doors of the buses. That company could not continue this business and closed it. A company founded by our minibus drivers won our tender, and they can only last two and a half years with 60 buses. Finally, when they closed this business, I called the minibuses. I said, "Guys, you haven't listened to me until now, you've always gone to the wrong places, let's give two minibuses a bus right and remove the minibus system from here." They said how it will be. Instead of 363 minibuses, there would be 8-181 buses of 182 meters in the center of Afyonkarahisar. KazanI told them.

I explained that their only loss would be to carry the people over the age of 65, the disabled, families of martyrs, veterans, members of the press free of charge, which is also a legal law. We couldn't convince our friends, we couldn't make them believe in this job," he said.

Today, Wooltas has three gasoline, all made from scratch, now doing the fourth. There are bus facilities, Bakery Products, cafeterias, natural stone factory, decorative parquet factory, concrete parquet factory.
