Konya is the largest city in our country in terms of face measurement. At the same time, with the advantages brought by its geographic features, dozens of modes of transportation have been developed in a wide and flat area. Public buses, minibuses, trams and bicycles serve almost every corner of the city. There have also been announcements that the metro will be built in the near future, but it is not clear what routes will be between them.
One of the most beautiful works in Konya is the free public transportation application made by the Metropolitan Municipality.
Thanks to the ATUS program, which is called Smart Public Transportation System, you can find out which stops the bus will take during which hours and you will know how many minutes the buses and trams will come from the nearest stops.
You can also see your location on the map, find the buses that provide transportation to your destination, and follow the map where you expect the bus. During your stay in Konya, we must say that it is one of the most important means to help you.
