Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) President Ekrem İmamoğluparticipated in the test drive of the domestic production bus, which is planned to be added to the metrobus fleet of the institution, between Beylikdüzü TÜYAP and Edirnekapı stops. In the test drive, İmamoğlu was accompanied by CHP Istanbul deputy Özgür Karabat, İBB Deputy Secretary General Orhan Demir, İBB President Advisor Murat Ongun and İETT General Manager Hamdi Alper Kolukısa. Having received technical information about the vehicle from Kolukısa and company officials, İmamoğlu also examined the driver's cabin, which was designed as a separate section from passengers. Some citizens, who saw İmamoğlu in the vehicle passing through a total of 28 stops, greeted the President of the İBB by waving.
BİR A DELAYED INVESTMENT ”
İmamoğlu made his first assessment of his investigations in the test vehicle. Am We are testing a metrobus vehicle designed with its advantages. Metrobus vehicles with high capacity, which we consider purchasing, are more spacious vehicles that can provide landing and boarding in both directions at some stops. Therefore, there is a process definition that will prevent accumulations and carry more passengers with fewer vehicles. My friends are doing their test drives close to a month. They wanted a test version with me. We will do our test from Beylikdüzü to Edirnekapı. Together we will observe the performance of the vehicle. The driver's cab is also more secure as a separate compartment. A vehicle type designed to meet every need. Of course, the vehicles were a little old. This is a slightly overdue investment. We want to act fast. We will make the right decision. We will ensure that Metrobus becomes a safer, more comfortable and faster means of transportation. ”
