What We Do?

Istanbul has more than 50,000 shuttle buses that are running at 9% efficiency. The same buses that are contributing to the city's traffic problem can be the tool to solve it.

Volt Lines is a subscription-based transportation service available for corporate users in Istanbul. Just like Netflix and Spotify, an account on Volt Lines gives its user access to unlimited rides on Volt Lines buses.

We're currently serving select corporate accounts during Istanbul's commute hours from Monday to Friday.

Making shuttle buses smarter, more efficient and dynamic can create an alternative transportation network that can replace even car ownership.

Our vision spans over the next 10 years as follows:

Short term vision (1-3 years): Convert as many corporates to Volt Lines as possible.
Mid-term vision (4-7 years): Expand our offering to individuals (b2c) and launch an on-demand real-time service.
