This study develops an institutional framework for the transfer of the sustainable urban mobility policies from developed to developing institutional settings. Drawing on new institutional economics approach, the study investigates the institutional structure of the urban mobility field with a view to propose a policy transfer framework. The framework is then used in transferring sustainable urban mobility policies from London to Istanbul. On its way to establish a more sustainable urban mobility system, the city of Istanbul, which is the economic capital of Turkey, grapples with many urban mobility problems such as rapid motorization, chronic traffic congestion, air and noise pollution and a fragmented governance structure. London's recent Mayor's Transport Strategy published in March, 2018 which sets out a comprehensive set of policies aiming towards a more sustainable urban mobility is used as a benchmark document for transferring policies to Istanbul. The policy transfer study, commissioned by the local transport authority of Istanbul, is undertaken by a team of experts, consultants and academics which include the author of this study as well. The transfer process is carried out by translating policies into the institutional structure of the policy borrowing city, namely Istanbul. The fragmentation in the policy and governance levels in Istanbul, acting as a major barrier for direct transfer, is addressed by the proposed institutional policy transfer framework. Overall, the study aims to open up new avenues for an institutionally-informed transport policy research. More specifically, the study provides novel conceptual tools for the analysis of the policy transfer studies involving disparate institutional settings.

Deveci M, Canıtez F, 2018, Adapting EFQM excellence model for public transport operators: A case of IETT, istanbul’s public bus operator, Alphanumeric Journal, Vol: 6, Pages: 211-226
There are several management approaches being utilized in public transport operators to achieve organizationalperformance. EFQM excellence model, promoted by the European Foundation for Quality Management, helpsorganizations achieve sustainable excellence with its holistic management framework. One of the mostoutstanding features of EFQM model is its balanced and holistic perspective for organizational performance basedon continuous improvement approach to exceed the stakeholders’ expectations. In this study, we examine the wayEFQM excellence model has been adapted and implemented for urban public transport operators through a casestudy of Istanbul’s public bus operator, IETT. The results of the case demonstrate the adaptation processes of thefundamental concepts of the model to a public transport operator’s organizational context, thus, providing anapplicable management model for other public transport operators as well. EFQM excellence model has beenadopted for the first time in a public transport company, therefore the results have significant implications toenhance quality initiatives in public transport operators, in particular, and urban mobility, in general.
