The first MPC forum was held on 20 – 21 March 2014 at Bogaziçi University in Istanbul.
The project consortium decided to organise the forum in Turkey’s capital for accesibility reasons and because several interesting urban mobility solutions have been deployed there.
Turkey has advanced public transport systems and the first BRT system in the region. The public transport system in Istanbul consists of metro, bus and tram.
Bus lanes and bus priority signal control have been implemented in some Turkish cities.
