Traffic Report | Zeytinburnu to Mecidiyekoy | First day after Pandemic Lockdown in Istanbul

It has been 66 days since I have not driven my car in Istanbul streets because of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

The government released lockdown rules and all restaurants, cafes, most of the business centers opened and people started to work from their offices. Shopping malls are fully opened, they were soft opened two weeks ago.

No travel ban between cities and all tourist places such as hotels and museums are now open.

Turkish Airlines and Pegasus Airlines scheduling domestic flights. Turkish Airlines planning to re-schedule international flights on 10 of June.

So the transition period is now started I hope everything goes well and we start to live this “new normal” or “a-normal” life.

I have driven my car from Zeytinburnu to Mecidiyekoy via Sahilyolu (coastal road), Yenikapi, Sarachane, Beyoglu, Taksim, Nisantasi (Rumeli Street).

Hope you enjoy.
