Minister Karaismailoğlu stated that they are now seeing more and more electric and non-electric micro-mobility vehicles with an average speed of 25 kilometers per hour in cities; he said:
“In addition to preventing traffic congestion and parking problems, micro-mobility vehicles, which are environmentally friendly systems in terms of carbon, add comfort to urban life with their noiseless nature. As the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, we attach great importance to increasing the quality of life of our citizens, supporting their mental and physical health, and bringing these environmentally friendly systems to our country with the systems we have created based on this fact, our legislation regulations and our incentive policies. One of the best examples of our services will be our PTT's initiation and widespread use of electric scooters. This important step taken by our Post and Telegraph Organization in distribution services is a product of our environment-oriented service approach. Our PTT increases the number of environmentalist practices and demonstrates its sensitivity in this field with concrete practices. We believe that the application, whose pilot study will start in Istanbul, will be welcomed by our citizens and will expand to cover other provinces in a short time.”
