The situation is difficult

In fact, fuel prices have risen by more than 94% in 70 days since the beginning of the year. Similar rises apply to energy prices. These extraordinary rises made public transport price increases obsolete some time ago, making the situation even more difficult than before.

I’ve heard of our suggestions

Healthy and sustainable public transport services in our big cities are one of the most important obligations of our municipality. Labor costs such as fuel and electricity used in public transport, as well as maintenance and repair costs resulting from overseas spare parts, are so high that municipalities can no longer afford them. Unfortunately, our proposal, which has repeatedly requested that SCTs not be removed from fuels used in public transport, at least, has been ignored by the central government.

According to the law, there are users of free public transport

Given all these processes, it is inevitable that public transport tariffs will increase significantly in the near future. Unfortunately, for reasons beyond our control, we need to reflect these increases in our citizens. In addition, many citizens use public transport for free, as required by law and within the framework of parliamentary decisions. Regulations promulgated in 2016 for citizens to receive healthy services have not increased the support of 1,000 TL paid by municipalities to privately owned vehicles that have licensed public transport in the city. Hmm. In such situations, transportation may meet citizens who use public transportation for free. By raising the price of this support application, it is very easy to prevent the discomfort that the government experiences on public transport.

As mayors of 11 metropolitan areas, we submit our statement in honor of public information. “
