With the unanimous decision taken at the November council meeting of the Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Council, healthcare workers who are the heroes of the pandemic process will benefit from public transportation free of charge between November 15 and December 31, 2021.
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality continues to support health heroes, who are at the forefront in the fight against coronavirus, and who work devotedly by being deprived of their families, children and loved ones. The Metropolitan Municipality, which has always been with healthcare workers with accommodation, free use of public transportation, vitamin C support packages and Health Heroes Memorial Forest, has extended the period of free use of public transportation.
