Some 60,000 signatures, demanding that Istanbul operate pink metrobuses catering solely to women, were delivered to the Istanbul Municipality as a part of an action lead by the conservative Felicity Party, private broadcaster NTV reported on its website today.

The head of the Felicity Party’s Istanbul branch, Selman Esmerer, said the pink vehicles would eliminate the discomfort experienced by older and pregnant women, as well as those traveling with children, on the overcrowded transport system, while also preventing sexual harassment.

"According to us, every third or fourth bus should be a pink metrobus, designated for women," Esmerer said. "Every woman can then choose whether to travel in a pink or normal vehicle."

Esmerer reportedly posted the signatures to the Istanbul Municipality after giving a speech in front of Taksim's post office. (Istanbul-Hürriyet Daily News)
