In this respect, public transportation is very, very important. We are making serious investments in transportation. There is a lot of work to be done this year. In such dense cities, I consider the unity of public transportation important. This application will provide serious support in this respect. The implementation is under the responsibility of the Metropolitan Municipality, but the district municipalities are also the controllers of this work. With mutual good intentions, we can fix troublesome issues. We must act as an intermediary for our citizens to get to work in the morning and home in the evening in a comfortable and healthy way.
