Our data on transportation fell sharply at 80-90 percent. However, we continued our seriousness and determination. I think we gave a successful exam in this process. Praise be to Allah, we have a strong state and a president. We already anticipate a loss of 30-40 million liras annually related to Burulaş. However, we have lost 3-140 million in 150 months. We made the damage we will make in 3 years in 3 months. Fortunately, the wheels did not stop. We do not compromise our stance and our determination. Bursa is a very strong and spiritual city.

As Bursa, we did a good job in the difficult process. I sincerely thank you all. God bless you all. Burulaş is our biggest company among 8 companies in terms of numbers and function. Burulaş is trying to renew itself, on the one hand, and to increase the satisfaction of the citizens to the next level. Although costs have increased, we do not reflect them. In everybody's language, there is a saying like 'Transportation in Bursa is expensive'. This is absolutely not true. We have an average price term covering details such as student, long distance, short distance, wagon. This average price is around 1.69. Some discounts and hikes were made. When we compare that day and today, this price increased to 1.81. It means 7-8 percent hike in two and a half years. There has been a hike in workmanship, electricity, fuel oil. We are trying to dig wells with needles. Thank goodness we are walking the road without disturbing the harmony of any of our friends. ”

Empathize yourself in their shoes. With the new normal process, life is increasingly moving. Transportation numbers are increasing gradually. It will become completely normal soon. The nation still has a reservation about public transport. You can go from one place to another by walking a short distance or with a private vehicle. But after a while there will be normalization. The important thing is to overcome this process in a healthy way. I thank you all separately. ”
