Marmaray Project will greatly affect inner city sea transportation. Because this area is a region where City Lines and private transportation companies transport 80% in sea transportation. Eminönü, Haydarpaşa, KadıköyAreas within a hexagon shaped as Beşiktaş, Üsküdar, Karaköy. It is absolute that Marmaray will affect this. We also know that this project is not an anti-sea project. We think that it will only significantly affect our passenger potential. As a result, the potential for carrying passengers is more than three times of maritime transport. IMM has a structure that integrates public transportation with the support of the Ministry of Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications. İBB, which is working to provide better service with many different companies, is in an effort to strengthen its service network with different modes. We are one of these modes. Sea transportation is inevitable for Istanbul, which is surrounded by water on all sides. Although there are alternative projects, maritime transport will shrink in certain areas, but will experience improvements in different areas.
What precautions do you take against this situation?
Of course, a line like Üsküdar-Eminönü will be seriously affected by the Marmaray project. Our highest transport line. Our flights will be rearranged according to him. We do surveys. The modes of transport have effects and after we see the practical results, we will produce alternatives. The Metrobus project had received many criticisms at first. Now, the 1 has become a project carrying nearly a million passengers. He was able to attract passengers in maritime transport. We anticipate that the Marmaray project will be more successful than expected with the integration of other metro transports. We will shape our tariffs according to the situation. We are already anticipating a decrease of% 50, and we shared our work with the Ministry in different media. We need to bring new projects to sea transportation and share it with the private sector. Sea transport is more back than land transport. In order to eliminate this situation, we need to develop ourselves and produce typical projects. In this sense, we opened the Üsküdar-Beşiktaş line, which we think will increase in the past year. The islands are of course important lines. Especially the lines outside the Marmaray line will be more attractive for urban transportation.
