Istanbul's public transport is very complex with many interactions between different modes of transportation, carriers and new projects. All of them had to be considered in this project, with the knowledge that the optimization had to be focused on the public bus transport provided by the IETT Company. Due to the lack of available basic demand data for private busses, only scheduled services can be considered and not passenger requested services.
