This table negatively affects the budget plans made at the beginning of the year. At the beginning of 2022, we had predicted the public transportation subsidy amount to be 2 billion TL. As of December 3,5, the amount of support from our safe has reached 4 billion TL. We anticipate that this figure will exceed XNUMX billion TL in the new year. It is a fact that we find it very difficult, but we will continue to provide this service in the best way possible with reasonable arrangements for our citizens.”
