Citizens using these buses will be able to connect to WizmirNET on their mobile phones and use the internet service by following the desired steps. Once connected, mobile phones will automatically be connected to the Internet on other boardings.

There will not be any quota for social media entries in internet connections made from buses. However, some security measures will be implemented to prevent malicious use. ESHOT General Directorate hung the posters with the theme of “connecting to the internet in three steps” prepared for the connection to be made easily. Work will continue to be implemented on a larger number of buses.
