With the renovation of the bridges in Istanbul, the citizens who want to get rid of the ordeal of traffic use the BRT vehicles, while the disabled are still victims of BRT.
Within the BRT lines, transportation is provided for disabled people only at certain stops, but not at all stops. When this is the case; using a metrobus, a wheelchair who wants to go from place to place, can go back and forth but get off at the stop or unrelated stop. When this happens, a funny picture emerges.
LIFT AND STAIR
The best answer to the question ne What happens if 20 wheelchairs and visually impaired people come together and go to Mecidiyeköy with a metrobus from Şirinevler? Ise is forced to return and return to Şirinevler. Because in Mecidiyeköy, there is no elevator and vehicle for wheelchair users and visually impaired citizens who can use the stairs after getting off the metrobus.
BRIDGE MODIFIED HANDICAPPED IN DISABLED
Likewise, due to the renovation of the bridges and the metrobus who do not want to get stuck in traffic and want to pass to the Anatolian side of the disabled car with the same event faced with the same event of citizens. For example, if you take the metrobus from Zeytinburnu and use the wheelchair and visually impaired citizen who wants to get off at Altunizade, you will be stranded at the Altunizade stop. Because there are no lifts and vehicles for disabled people on the 500 meter stairs to connect to the main road from Altunizade station.
B WHERE THOUSAND THOUSAND İN
Speaking to Hürhaber.com'a disabled citizens, Ali Yildirim said, ulaşım Transportation in Istanbul is a big ordeal for us. Whether you try to ride from Ayvansaray, from Halıcıoğlu, from SSK Hospital or from Perpa bin Wherever you get on Metrobüs, you stay where you land. Although you've had an extraordinary effort to get on the ride, you have the same trouble getting off. When it comes down, you're thinking about climbing the 40 staircase, but you can't,. He said.
“BUYURUN NEAR HERE”
Yıldız Yıldırım, one of the disabled citizens, said, “I got on the ferry, let's say the driver really approached the station, let alone the helpless person did not know, he opened the ramp on the bus, was not occupied by unknowing friends in the barrier inside the metrobus and emptied that part of my wheelchair for me. I'll get off at Söğütlüçeşme, somehow there are no stairs that don't work to get out of the station. Kadıköy" I said. I said but I have never taken into account the padlock on the disabled door with "wheelchair picture" on it. Moreover, there is no servant of God who carries the key around. There are turnstiles that are too narrow for even a man over 120 KG to pass, let alone the wheelchair. Turnstile me; I look deeply into the turnstile. Until three or five benevolent citizens raised my chair (with me on it) about 1 meter above the ground and passed it to the other side of the door. This is our view. There is nothing to tell ”.
DISABLED NEEDS TO BE INVESTED
In Istanbul, which has a crowded population, one of the biggest demands of the disabled citizens who have suffered especially in terms of transportation is to make investments in the metrobus area especially for disabled people to travel comfortably. The common message of many disabled citizens whose opinion we have received is; BB IMM should stop creating new obstacles for us to live. I leave the understanding of the disabled, who caused us such an ordeal, with their consciences ”.
