“An average of 2,5 million TL loss is made every month”
Expressing that subsidies are indispensable in transportation, Enver Sedat Tamgacı said, “As Samulaş, we operate the rail system, bus, cable car and the parking lot under the Bulvar AVM. With 20 percent in the transport sector anywhere in Turkey is creating free passengers. 40 percent of them are teachers and students. The rest are traveling at regular rates. Thus, in the public transport it is suspended them anywhere in Turkey. As far as I know, Şanlıurfa became the new metropolitan area. It provides its company with 5 million support every month. Konya does this work within the municipality. It provides an average of 5 million monthly support. Ankara Metropolitan Municipality provides 500 million TL support annually. Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality subsidizes this business with an average of 1 billion TL support each year. We have a turnover of 4,5 million every month and we have an expense of approximately 6,5-7 million TL. Therefore, a loss of approximately 2-2,5 million TL is made every month. In the determinations last year, it was stated that 24 million losses were made. The company has no harm until 2016. Approximately 2016 buses were bought after 70. Tram purchases were made. There have been some losses with their reimbursement. This is the biggest figure, with 24 million last year, probably at that level this year. In 2017, approximately 12 million TL was lost. When we add up, there is nearly 3 million losses in the past 40 years. There is no harm before him, ”he said.
“Passengers will not wait more than 6 minutes tram”
Tamgacı stated that passengers will not expect trams more than 6 minutes, especially in short line.
“There is no new tram purchase right now. In its current form, the rail system will continue. We made some business changes. We think the number of vehicles available is sufficient today. No vehicle purchases are visible in the short term for savings. There was a vehicle purchase tender, we canceled it. You know the economic situation of both Samsun and the country. Therefore, we do not buy vehicles in the short term because we think we can remove this business with the present, and we will not buy staff. Rail system flights extended from Tekkeköy to OMÜ. There will be no elongation at any time. We follow the expeditions. We also follow up if there is any deficiency. In the winter period, with the opening of the schools, we have prepared our flights to OMU, Municipalities, and the Rector's Office to Tekkeköy, that is, every 6 minutes in the buffer zone. There will be no increase in time. We will speed up a little, and we will close that gap with it. Citizens will not wait more than 1 minutes, especially between the Rectorate and Municipalities. Crowd rates are also calculated and are in our data. Some vehicles have problems with their own ergonamia. We have a bit of information lacking. We will do this by providing them and making spacers. Density we almost have to solve it. If we solve the vehicles by sending them to Tekkeköy, this will not work. Therefore, our problem is short, but the intermediate ring will plan flights according to where the passenger lands and gets on. ”
