Message from TCDD Transportation General Manager Ufuk YALÇIN, 3 December International Day of Persons with Disabilities
3 December International Day of Persons with Disabilities; With the awareness that everyone is a candidate for disability, it contributes to increasing our empathy skills and improving our awareness of our responsibilities for a better and happier social life.
Within this awareness, the "Barrier-Free Transportation for All" activities, which were initiated under the leadership of our Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, in order to ensure that our disabled and mobility-restricted citizens benefit from the right of transportation, which is one of the most basic human rights, continues to develop and continue in railway transportation.
As the TCDD Transportation General Directorate, we carry out very good works to remove obstacles in railway transportation, while we organize all our trains according to their needs so that the disabled and mobility-impaired citizens can travel in the best way, and our service quality is increased by taking into account their needs in all processes of their travels.
With the “Orange Table” application, we do not leave disabled and mobility-restricted citizens alone from the beginning to the end of the trip, and we always support them with our teams at the stations and stations. We are accelerating our work for the dissemination of the Orange Table application.
Again, in addition to the membership system provided to disabled passengers, we ensure that they get their tickets in a short time, with disabled toll booths and our sign language trained staff at these toll booths and call center.
While expressing that all of us have traits that we can learn a lot from the determination, success and fighting spirit of our disabled citizens on International Day of Persons with Disabilities, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate my disabled brothers and sisters who have not lost their fighting spirit.
While I wish the 3 December International Day of Persons with Disabilities to contribute greatly to the life journey of my disabled brothers and sisters, I state that we, as the railroad family, are always by their side, and offer my love.
General Director of TCDD Transportation
