Abstract

Dolmush is a shared taxi system, which has a fixed route. This paratransit system is very popular in Turkey for a long time. The system offers cheap and comfortable trips like a private car in city centers. But the system has low capacity by comparison to other public transit systems and many dolmush drivers cause traffic problems in city center. Therefore many Turkish municipalities try for transition from dolmush to taxi. But there is no prediction study about “after transition”. Many passengers can prefer using of their private car and therefore traffic and parking problems can increase in city center. Because dolmush isn’t an unproductive alternative of bus system, it is a very productive alternative of private car usage. Therefore, it needs a detailed study about after transition.
