Only 60 percent hike in fuel
Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Tunç Soyer emphasized that they are not in favor of an increase in any service, but the current economic conditions make new regulations mandatory. Pointing out that the fees in public transportation have been applied in the same way for the last 16 months, President Soyer said, “Unfortunately, there has been an increase of more than 60 percent in fuel and energy costs in this process. Increases in PPI, CPI foreign exchange and inflation figures; It has significantly increased costs in all items, from all kinds of consumables to spare parts, from service and maintenance expenses to personnel progress payments.”
Metropolitan support will continue
In the last regulation made on September 1, 2020 and the transition to the 120 Minute Transfer System, 10 cents in the full boarding fee; Reminding that there is a 16 cent discount for student boarding, President Soyer said, “In the current picture, we had to rearrange the boarding fees in order for the public transportation service to continue in a healthy way. Still, we thought of our fellow countrymen; We did not choose the numbers that should be. Based on the PPI and CPI averages, all boarding must be at least 5,08 TL. We didn't do this. Only this year, we closed the loss balance sheets of our public transportation institutions and organizations with close to 1 billion liras of our budget. As the Metropolitan Municipality, we will continue to subsidize public transportation.”
