Instead of the phaeton transportation, which has been discussed for years, IMM's environmentally friendly electric vehicles that will provide mass transportation in Adalar have started their flights today.


Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) resolved an important problem of Istanbul by ending horse-drawn carriage transportation that caused the death of hundreds of horses. Electric vehicle services that will provide internal transportation instead of carriages in Adalar started to serve in Büyükada first.

IETT LINES AND FEES TARIFFS

The Büyükada line, which will work with the code BA-1, will serve on the Çarşı-Tepeköy-Kadıyoran route, the line with the code BA-2 will serve on the Çarşı-Maden-Nizam route, and the line with the code BA-3 on the Lunapark Square-Büyüktur route.

With the decision of the Transportation Coordination Directorate (UKOME), the fare tariffs of the vehicles that will serve in the Islands were also announced last week. According to the tariff, Adakart owners will pay 13 liras 3 cents for flights with 50-person electric vehicles. Passengers who do not have Adakart and who will use Istanbulcard will pay a fee of 12 TL.
