Kahramanmaraş Metropolitan Municipality stated that the news about "Raise to Public Transport" did not reflect the truth, there was no increase in public transportation fees, and the number of boarding passes was reduced to two for single-pass cards.
In the written statement made by KMBB Transportation Services Department on the subject: “The price of a disposable ticket used in public transportation service in our city center and with the decision of UKOME dated 16.01.2020 and numbered 2020 / 01-02 was arranged as 2 boarding passes 10 TL.
Disposable tickets are the type of ticket that is sold in buses, dealers and personalization processing centers in order to provide tickets for citizens who do not have a Kahramankart from outside our city, and to eliminate the grievance of our citizens who cannot fill or board due to insufficient balance.
Recently, it has been seen that our citizens prefer this ticket type instead of Kahramankart. The sale of disposable tickets should be balanced at the point of providing a sustainable public transportation service due to the difficulty of obtaining disposable tickets from abroad and the disadvantages of continuing the driver-cash relationship since they are sold in the bus. For this reason, only the disposable ticket price has been updated.
The mentioned disposable tickets are only an alternative boarding vehicle, besides, boarding with the Contactless credit card developed by our Metropolitan Municipality, boarding with NFC technology, Loading the balance with the Kahramankarta SMS method from all phone operators and the service of filling over the Internet for our citizens. Also presented at point. Full fee for boarding with Kahramankart is 2.8 TL, discounted (student) 1.80 TL, and no price increase has been made.
For this reason, we expect our citizens to be sensitive to the use of more economical Kahramankards.
Disposable ticket application is not only an application specific to Kahramanmaraş Metropolitan Municipality, similar applications are made in other metropolitan cities due to the high cost and supply of cards ”.
