A New Era Begins at Istanbulkart

The application, which was accepted at the June meeting of the IMM, will eliminate the panic of “I wonder if there is money on my card” experienced by Istanbulkart holders when getting on public transportation vehicles.

6,500 people who use public transportation during the day in Istanbul are faced with an “insufficient balance” warning. 62 percent of Istanbulkart owners who receive a warning load their balance, 13 percent do not top up at all, and 24 percent do not top up at all.
