Organic routes are also active
In the past, İETT created village routes for İstanbul citizens who want to experience the village life and have a different kind of weekend. By opening new bus lanes for citizens who had trouble reaching the rural areas, İETT brought the people and the organic good produced in the rural areas of İstanbul together.
People can take the bus lanes from Arnavutköy, Başakşehir, Beykoz, Çatalca, Çekmeköy, Eyüp, Pendik, Sancaktepe, Sarıyer, Silivri and Şile districts, and spend a day in touch with nature without leaving İstanbul.
