Kayseri Metropolitan Municipality Transportation Coordination Center (UKOME) made a change in the urban public transportation fare schedule. The tariff, which has been applied for more than 28 years since 2019 August 2, has been renewed taking into account the increase in public transportation expenses. Accordingly, the full contactless ticket was 3.60 TL and the non-contact discounted ticket was 1.90 TL. The Board also decided to implement the "Early Transportation Tariff" and "Indirect Line Transportation Tariff" applications for the first time in Kayseri.
At the Board meeting, the public transportation fare tariff applied since 25 August 28, effective from September 2019, was redefined in urban public transportation. The fee schedules formed according to the new regulation were as follows:
“Full contactless ticket: 3.60 TL, Contactless discount ticket: 1.90 TL, Subscription full (140 boarding per month): 185 TL, Subscription discount (140 boarding per month): 90 TL, Contactless teacher: 3.20 TL, Early Transportation Tariff Non-contact Full: 3 TL, Early Transportation Tariff Contactless Discount: 1.60 TL, Early Transportation Tariff Contactless Teacher: 2.65 TL, Direct Line Contactless Full: 3 TL, Indirect Line Contactless Discount: 1.60 TL, Indirect Line Teacher: 2.65 TL, Long Line Contactless Full: 3.60 TL , Long Line Contactless Discount: 1.90 TL, Long Line Contactless Teacher: 3.20 TL, Contactless KAYBİS Full Card: 3.60 TL and Contactless KAYBİS Student Card: 1.90 TL.”
EARLY TRANSPORTATION TARIFF LAUNCHED
By deciding to apply the "Early Transportation Tariff" for the first time in Kayseri, UKOME paved the way for citizens using public transportation between 05.00-06.45 to continue to benefit from the previous tariff, excluding long lines.
PAY 1 CONTINUES TO TAKE 3 TIMES, TRANSFER STARTS IN ALL DISTRICTS
While the connecting bus lines are still in the group not affected by the update, passengers still have the right to make 80 free transfers within 3 minutes. Passengers who pay the fare once, including discount cards, get 1 different boarding rights within 80 minutes. In addition, free transfer service from all district transportation vehicles to rail system stations within 3 minutes will be offered to citizens as of September 80, 25. Free transfer from all lines to all lines within 2021 minutes will be only in Kayseri in Turkey and this application will continue with updates.
