Mitigation actions

Organic Transportation
The ‘Organic Transportation’ project seeks to increase the use of bike and public transportation to reduce traffic and greenhouse gas emissions. Within the context of the project, Yalova has completed a 44 km bike and pedestrian path. 110 free adult bikes have been put into service at shared-cycle stations located throughout the city. The City has also finished infrastructure for a card system that will be used for lending the bikes, including the acquisition of ten card readers. Middle school students received training on traffic, public transportation and bike usage. One thousand bikes will be made available to students and teachers. Bike parking areas will be installed at 27 primary and secondary schools. The project will also promote physical activity and enhance urban health. To expand public transportation, the City has provided buses and minibuses for the disabled to be phased in over several stages, in cooperation with the Minibus Drivers’ Assembly. Start year 2012
