Volt Lines : Digital Transformation of Employee Transport
Did you know that Istanbul is the 6th most congested city in the world with people spending on average 59% more time in traffic than they're supposed to?
At Volt Lines, we believe empty seats in traffic (or the inefficient use of vehicles) is the biggest cause of congestion.
