ALL BUSES GATHERED UNDER IETT ROOF

“The Private Public Bus transformation project, which is an important innovation for Istanbul transportation, was implemented in December 2020 in order to increase the service quality of Private Public buses and Istanbul Transportation Inc. buses. In this way, all buses in Istanbul were gathered under the roof of IETT. The most important gains of the project are passenger satisfaction, flexible planning, integrated lines to subways, more trips and transformation steps in mileage-based payments to public buses. In the last quarter of this year, as a result of the cooperation of services, all buses operating in Istanbul with rubber wheels will be in yellow, and the last step of the project will be realized. As the first positive outputs of the new system, we have made planning flexible enough to significantly increase the voyage rates of private transportation vehicles. "
The headlines in Bilgili's presentation are as follows:
JOURNEY DECREASED 40 PERCENT IN THE PANDEM
“As a rubber-wheeled public transportation, we have traveled 2020 million kilometers by serving 800 or 820 and a half million trips to a total of 16 million passengers in 460 with IETT and private transportation vehicles. Within this total activity, we have traveled 353 million kilometers by serving our 490 million passengers with 7 or even 700 million 223 thousand trips with IETT vehicles. Due to the pandemic, the annual number of trips of IETT decreased from 2019 million to 573 million compared to 353, by about 40 percent.
ALTHOUGH THE FALL, THE TRIPS INCREASED
“Although the number of our trips has decreased by 40 percent, we completed our total number of trips above 2019 as IETT. The number of flights, which was 2019 million in 7,6, increased by 100 thousand to 2020 million in 7,7. In line with the increase in our total number of trips, we, as IETT, have increased our mileage compared to the previous year. While we covered 2019 million kilometers in 219, we traveled 2020 million kilometers in 223. "
INCOME FIXED, EXPENSE EXPENSES
“While our income per passenger has remained almost constant in the last 5 years, our expense per passenger has continuously increased in parallel with the increase in inflation and exchange rates. Our cost per passenger, which was 2016 lira per passenger in 3,2, increased to 2020 lira per passenger due to the fact that the trips could not be reduced as a result of capacity limitations, although the trips were reduced by 40 percent in 6,6. As a result of the increase in the difference between income and expenditure over the years, the ratio of income to expenditure was approximately 2016 percent in 55, while this ratio decreased to approximately 2020 percent in 35. "
SUBSIDIARY OVER 2 BILLION LIRA
“As the correlation between income and expenditure has not followed a positive course in the last 5 years, the rubber-wheeled public transportation service is increasingly subsidized by IMM every year and to a large extent. With the effect of the additional adverse effects of the pandemic, the support provided by IMM for our tire-wheeled public transportation services in 2020 alone was over 2 billion lira. "
