"Public transportation problem increases traffic"
Stating that they will complete the construction of the minibus terminal project that will solve the transportation problem from the districts to the city center by the end of the year, Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Mustafa Demir said, “The rail system in Samsun is an important investment. It also performs an important function in public transportation. Especially in the public transportation system from districts and neighborhoods to the center, our people come by changing 3 vehicles. There is a wife, there is a winter, there is an elderly person, there are children. They are in great trouble with what they bring with them. We had an 8-month count to solve this problem. We found that 24 public transportation vehicles arrived from the districts to the city center within 372 hours. "We saw that there was a density of private vehicles due to the inability of public transportation vehicles to reach the center, and this increased the traffic more."
Emphasizing that the district minibus terminal project to be built next to the cultural center will be tendered soon, Mayor Demir said, “The rail system is right next to it. Pedestrian crossings are also ready. It is a very convenient location. Besides the zoning problem, it does not cost much. We plan to make the tender and finish it by the end of the year. The old zoo area is also seen as an attractive gathering area. We will also build the collection areas and open them into service next year. We also bring serious discipline to passenger loading and unloading areas. With this, we will prevent parking and red light violations near intersections with optical readers. We will adjust the light times automatically. It will be a perfect system by using its infrastructure and cutting-edge technology ”.
