AVAILABLE 7/24 AND CALLED THROUGH THE APP
Sea Taxis, with a capacity of 10 passengers, aims to increase the share of the sea in public transportation by being able to be used every hour, regardless of voyage times. It will be possible to be called from 98 piers in the first place with an application. Passengers will be able to make reservations by choosing the piers, date and time they want to travel to.
In the future, it will start to serve as a "Taxi Dolmus" with its shared usage model, and it will also be able to be called to any place where boats are allowed to berth, independent of the piers.
