Özet

In recent years, especially due to increased traffic congestion the motorcycle usage in Istanbul has become increasingly widespread. According to 2015 data, the number of automobiles in Istanbul has reached up to 2.5 million, while the number of motorcycles has reached up to 260 thousand. This transportation mode, which was predominantly used by the couriers previously, has become a preferred mode of transportation by the reason of its speed and operating cost at urban trips.
