Bicycle taxi promotes climate awareness in Turkey’s Kırklareli
Emin Halebak, the mayor of Kırklaerli’s Lüleburgaz district, told state-run Anadolu Agency on Jan. 30 that the “bicycle taxi” was realized as part of a joint project with the EU dubbed “We fight against climate change with our bicycles.”
“We have kicked off the bicycle taxi project in the city against global warming, global climate change and to reduce our carbon footprint,” Halebak said.
The project is worth €50,000 ($62,000) and will continue for one year initially.
The bicycle taxis will be free of charge for all people living in Lüleburgaz for the duration of the project.
“We want to ensure that elderly people, pregnant women, disabled people and children under 10 can go wherever they want in Lüleburgaz,” said Halebak.
