UKOME (Transportation Coordination Center), chaired by the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, discussed important issues related to Istanbul transportation at the meeting it held at the Istanbul Congress Center. In the meeting chaired by IMM Secretary General Can Akın Çağlar, the new term school bus fees and staff shuttle fees were discussed.
According to the statement made by the Ministry of National Education, distance education will begin on August 31, and face-to-face education will begin gradually on September 21. The news of the start of face-to-face training brought the question of how much the service fees will be in the 2020-2021 Academic Year.
The "School Service Fee Schedule Regulation Proposal" discussed at the UKOME meeting held last month was sent to the sub-commission. The proposal was discussed again at the UKOME meeting held at the Istanbul Congress Center today.
Gathering with the agenda of determining the school service fees for the new term, UKOME could not agree on the fee increase. While IMM offered an increase of 11,16 percent, which is an annual inflation increase, İSTESOB offered a 33,15 percent increase. As a result of long discussions, the proposal was left for the next meeting to be evaluated after the new education system became clear.
