BURSA – Providing uninterrupted transportation of Bursa residents to Istanbul and Sabiha Gökçen airports, the Metropolitan Municipality has included Gemlik, Orhangazi and Yalova on its BBBUS route. BBBUS, which previously followed the highway and went directly to Sabiha Gökçen, has now added Gemlik, Orhangazi and Yalova terminals in addition to the existing route. BBBUS will also transport passengers at these stations to the airport from now on.
Contributing to the connection of Bursa residents with other cities and countries with BBBUS operating under BURULAŞ, the Metropolitan Municipality expanded its service network. A new route was created for Sabiha Gökçen Airport in the BBBUS bus services, which were launched in August 2017 for transportation to Sabiha Gökçen Airport, which is used extensively by Bursa residents, and was put into use for Istanbul Airport last year. BBBUS, which used to go directly to Sabiha Gökçen Airport via the highway from Bursa Terminal, created a new route including Gemlik, Orhangazi and Yalova upon popular demands. BBBUS, which departs from Bursa Terminal in these expedetion as an alternative to Sabiha Gökçen Airport, also takes passengers from Gemlik, Orhangazi and Yalova terminals and reaches Sabiha Gökçen. The return route of the line is also provided from a separate route.
Bursa Metropolitan Municipality Mayor Alinur Aktaş stated that accessibility is of great importance in line with tourism targets, both nationally and internationally, and said that Bursa residents especially use Sabiha Gökçen Airport intensively. Expressing that the flights made by BBBUS to Sabiha Gökçen Airport reached 90 percent occupancy rate, President Aktaş said, “Our expedetions were made directly from the highway, but there were intense demands to cover Gemlik, Orhangazi and Yalova. In addition to the highway line, we created a new route covering this region. For now, we have commissioned 4 times a day. We can increase the number of expedetions in direct proportion to the demand,” he said.
