Access barrier for the disabled in Istanbul

transportation barriers for disabled in Istanbul: They are 12 percent of Turkey's population, accounted for about 10 million of the population. Their numbers cannot be underestimated, but transportation in Istanbul is the biggest obstacle for the disabled. Because it is almost impossible for them to walk even on the sidewalk… Metrobus means danger for them.
Transportation is one of the biggest problems for almost everyone in Istanbul, while transportation means a separate obstacle for the disabled.
"THE PROBLEM BEGINS WHEN WE COME TO THE STREET."
Sometimes a vehicle parked on the curb, sometimes the lack of guide roads forcing them.
“I WILL GO TO THE STREET, BUT I CAN'T WALK ON THE STREET I HAVE A CAR ON MY RIGHT. I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS AHEAD "
Ihsan Sheriff's Day, only one of Turkey accounts for 12 percent of the population with disabilities. He wants to go to work from his home, but gets stuck in his street, and this situation continues along the way.
“There are very few places to guide. THEY ARE NOT HEALTHY. 00.42 EVERYWHERE IS THAT. "
Ihsan Guner, who was blind from birth, does not come across the guide path as he moves towards the Mecidiyeköy metrobus. But it's not a surprise for him. The main problem is the bus and metrobus live ahead of the journey.
"I will go to the building from here, but I have to get help. For example, I am telling you that the voice system will tell you when this vehicle comes, but when your vehicle comes first, you are gone. If there was an audio system I would have heard it "
The second option for Güner is metrobus, but he is also quite dangerous.
“A disabled person cannot use the BRT in most places or their elevators are often broken. The visually impaired can go up here and the orthopedic disabled will not. When we get on the metrobus, there is nothing directing us. We come and go in fear of great distress. It is very difficult for us to go from place to place. those who have the courage come out and those who do not have the courage are locked in the house
