Stating that their aim is to provide cost-effective and sustainable transportation services focused on passenger satisfaction with public and private sector resources. Associate Professor.

“MARMARAY AND THE METROBUS PASSENGER WILL REDUCE OUR NUMBER.”
Süleyman Genç, General Manager of Istanbul City Lines, started his speech on “Vision of Maritime Transport in Public Transport” by stating that the oldest public transport vehicles are the ferries belonging to the city lines, and stated that they remain only as public institutions after the privatization of İDO. Delivering the amount of mass transportation of passengers from the sea in Istanbul as 350 thousand passengers, Genç stated that 150 thousand of it was realized by the City Lines and the rest was done by private vehicles. Stating that the vision of maritime transportation in 2013 and 2014 is 2% or 3% today, Genç said that they lost passengers together with Marmaray and Metrobus in the coming period and this rate will increase even after Marmaray becomes operational. Eagle - Kadıköy Emphasizing that the subway line to be constructed between them will provide a little increase in passenger, Genç said, “If we evaluate the sea transportation in Istanbul as today and tomorrow, 80% of it takes place in a hexagonal area. To count, Üsküdar - Beşiktaş, Kabataş - Kadıköy and Eminönü - Kadıköy These are Haydarpaşa lines. Here in this area, 80% of public transport from the sea takes place. Although Eagle - Kadıköy Although a one-year transportation increase will be achieved with the introduction of the Metro Line, the introduction of Marmaray will reduce the number of passengers by affecting the transportation of this 80% area by 60 to 70%. ” said. Saying that Istanbul City lines have three main arteries in sea transportation, Genç explained these three arteries as the Bosphorus line area, the Golden Horn area associated with Üsküdar and the hexagonal area mentioned earlier. Explaining that the Adalar line is the only area where the potential of the passenger will not decrease as the City Lines maritime transportation, Genç said, “In the 2014-2015 vision, we will not lose much passengers in Beşiktaş-connected and center-connected flights to Adalar, but will be built in the Bosphorus towards the Marmaray, the rubber rail and maybe the 2023 vision. After the bridge has been put into operation, there is no possibility that the maritime transport share will increase. Maybe I would like to share with you my opinion that this numerical data can be increased by making some attractive applications. The sea is a very dynamic area, there will be developments in the North - South area parallel to the growth of Istanbul in the East - West axis. But will the sea's answers parallel to the subject in this framework be in parallel? It is difficult to fully predict it. Rail and road systems are developing in parallel with the subject, but there is no way that maritime transport can respond in parallel. For example; Despite the improvement in the areas between Karaburun and Şile, the sea does not have an environment to answer this issue. This system, which passes air above the water, is a different medium. ” he spoke.
