No compromise on quality
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Alinur Aktaş said that the transportation problem cannot be solved only with the construction of new roads, bridges and junctions, and that the culture of public transportation should definitely become widespread in Bursa, whose central population is approaching 2,5 million. Stating that they have taken steps to increase both the economic price policy and the service quality in order to encourage public transportation, President Aktaş said, “We are in the effort to transport the people of Bursa from their homes to work and from their jobs to their homes in the most comfortable way. With the investments we have made in this area, the number of our citizens who prefer public transportation is increasing. With the completion of the Emek-Şehir Hospital and University-Görükle lines in the rail system, we expect more interest in the rail system. We are happy to have received the reward of all our efforts with the industry leader award.”
