The Istanbul Electric Tram and Tunnel Company (İETT), the city’s public bus authority, introduced buses with new “panic buttons” on Feb. 26. Hasan Celikdelen, head of the IETT’s IT department, said when a person presses one of the new panic buttons, it generates a signal received by the company’s control center. 

“After that, our center will begin to receive live footage from four cameras within the bus. Photographs taken by these security cameras will reach our servers,” Çelikdelen said. The IETT center will also alert security forces and a company official will be dispatched to the scene.
