Passengers whose belongings are lost will be able to apply through the system. It was determined that Istanbul residents mostly lost their personal belongings such as Istanbul card and identity card.
Objects forgotten at bus, metrobus, metro, tram, stops and stations in Istanbul are recorded by the officials and taken to the lost office in the IETT Tunnel building in Karaköy.
Items are delivered to their owners here. Items that are not received are stored here for a while, and if their owners are not revealed, they are sold by tender. Some clothing and stationery materials are donated to charities.
MOSTLY FORGOTTEN IDENTITIES
In the goods found in public transportation vehicles affiliated to the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM), the record cards are created. Last year, 50 thousand Istanbul cards and 12 thousand personal identity cards such as passports, licenses and identity cards were found in vehicles and stops. 18 percent of the cards found were brought together with their owners.
