Along with the greening of our campus, we are trying to provide the best transportation. The process we are going through is a very good example of cooperation between state institutions in Manisa, mutual understanding and supporting each other. Multilateral efforts have been made,” he said.
“Our goal of comfortable and safe transportation”

We will provide a comfortable transportation service to our students. Our planning was last year, but our schools were closed due to the pandemic. With the opening calendar of the university, we started the public transportation service. We wish success to our students, I hope we aim to provide a public transportation service with confidence and comfort.
