İzmir Metropolitan Municipality has determined the public transportation prices as 19 kurus throughout the day in order to witness the enthusiastic and wide participation of the 1 May Commemoration of Atatürk, Youth and Sports Day celebrations that will take place on Sunday. With another proposal accepted in the Metropolitan Municipality Council, it was decided to provide free public transportation service during the Ramadan Feast.
