Abstract: The government in Turkey had asked major cities to complete sustainable transport plans, Antalya among them.  That plan is about to be made public within the next few months.  The Mayor’s office asked the MAP team to contribute by examining how taxi operations could be better integrated within the overall transport plan.  This involved looking at issues of sustainability in conjunction with concerns to ensure equitable availability of taxis to all zones and demographics within the city.
