The mayor of Antalya held a press conference at which he informed journalists about the decision to stop the work of phaetons in Antalya.

“Together with transport coordination center of Antalya (UKOME), we have taken the decision to discontinue the operation of the carriages in the district of Manavgat, starting from 10th of June. Horses running on the hot asphalt with the sun of Antalya, are at greater risk. We decided all the horses to pass to the local zoo. Phaeton drivers will not be left without work – it is a joint decision with the transport sector”, – the mayor said.
