The Covid-2020 epidemic, which has also affected Turkey since March 19, had serious negative effects on public transportation as well as in all areas of life. Before the pandemic, while 1 million 900 thousand rides were made on all public transportation vehicles on a daily basis, this figure decreased to 2020 thousand with a decrease of 90 percent as of the second quarter of 200. The loss of revenue, triggered by the 'passenger capacity reduction' decisions implemented with the Presidential decrees in order to protect public health, had a very negative impact on the sustainability of the service. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality subsidized all public transportation institutions and organizations, and the subsidy amount in the last two years had reached 1 billion 309 million TL.
