While the opening fare was raised to 4 Turkish Liras ($1.17), the fare per kilometer rose to 2.5 liras ($0.73), according to a decision announced by Istanbul’s Transportation Coordination Center (UKOME). Therefore, the short-haul amount increased from 8.75 liras to 10 liras ($2.93).

2.5 liras per km doesn't sound too bad. I see it's 2.6 in Antalya. (And 4.5 in Kalkan).

Up but still a bargain compared to taxi prices anywhere in North American and Western Europe :)
