Bursa Mayor Alinur Aktas, the city's public transportation prices in the last 2 year remained almost the same level, said: “Despite the increase in the percentage of 50 total costs in the name of public transportation, the same level of public transport, 2 pounds per year we collect today 1.69 around pounds, ”he said.
In the Metropolitan City Council, it was brought to the agenda by the opposition that once a year elderly people over the age of 65 had difficulties in seeing their cards or that this should not be done or should be free of charge.
“Seniors make use of their card baş
Burulaş General Manager Mehmet Kürşat Çapar gave information to the members of the assembly and said, olarak As Burulaş, we have a turnover of 1 million TL per day. In public transportation, we are losing about 12-13. This is a cost that we assume because of free transport. One of the problems we encounter very often in our citizens over the age of 65 is the use of cards to others. Actually, I wasn't going to bring this up. But it is useful to explain. Our old citizen card 55-year-old friend, relatives are using. It is inevitable to bear the cost of updating and changing this. Free transportation costs a lot. We supported public buses to avoid problems. Public buses have introduced the subsidy system for disabled or 65 to behave well over the age. They need to be acted on with regard to similar proposals that have cost to the institution. ”
Kürşat Çapar noted that the average prices of public transportation did not increase in the 2 year. 2 percent increase in electricity was done. We used to carry 48 million passengers a year, now we carry 50 million passengers. There has been an increase in the number of passengers by 105 and contributes to reducing our per capita cost. 220 years ago, the money we collected at the beginning of the boarding day, this figure was 250 lira. While the cost of transportation per person in private public buses is 12 lira, the cost of transportation per person in Burulaş buses is around 2 lira. The personal rights of our employees and the fact that we operate inefficient lines increase these figures. Despite the cost of transportation, we made a major investment of 1,69 million TL. We contributed to the purchase of buses, the establishment of the camera and control center, the switchgear, the signaling investment and the transportation master plan. In our financial statement; even though we have a structure that we do, we only suffer as much as 1.70's burden on elderly and disabled people we carry for free. We argued that it is unfair to impose the loss caused by 2.10 percent disabled or elderly people on a limited budget. That's why we didn't raise the 2.70 yearly process. ”
