IDO İstanbul Deniz Otobüsleri Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. was founded in 1987 in Istanbul by the Greater Metropolitan Council for the purpose of promoting sea transport and helping to ease traffic jams. Istanbul’s sea transport was largely carried out by Turkish Maritime Operations City Lines before 1987. In that year, İstanbul Ulaşım and Ticaret A.Ş. (Istanbul Transport and Trade Ltd) was founded by the Greater Metropolitan Council, bringing a second marine transportation organization into existence. Later in 1988 the organization underwent a title change, becoming IDO - İstanbul Deniz Otobüsleri Sanayi ve Ticaret (Istanbul Sea Buses Industry and Commerce), Ltd. Sea crossings are an important transportation alternative in Istanbul, since it is surrounded by water. With the traffic getting more chaotic by the day in Istanbul, you will be saving time every day you ride the sea buses, which have a history that goes back 22 years.IDO is introducing new routes to meet increased demand and is slashing prices even more with the aim of providing cheaper travel for Istanbul residents. Hopes are rising that, with capacity utilization increasing by the day, prices will soon be competitive with other transport alternatives. By combining human services with technology, Istanbul Sea Buses is advancing quickly and resolutely towards a brighter future. In February 2005, the Greater Istanbul Metropolitan Council expressed its desire to take over Türkiye Şehir Hatları İşletmesi by submitting a protocol to the High Board of Privatization (HBP). The takeover operations were carried out by IDO on behalf of the Greater Istanbul Metropolitan Council. Following the takeover, the Greater Istanbul Metropolitan Council became the sole authority responsible for marine transportation in Istanbul and this responsibility was largely transferred to IDO. In June 2011, IDO was privatized and started to be steered by Tepe-Akfen-Souter-Sera Joint Venture management. In the Project Finance Awards 2011, which organized by Euromoney, the privatization of IDO has been granted the award of “European Transport Privatization Deal of the Year.”
