Sept. 27 (Bloomberg) -- The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development will provide $150 million in financing to the new owners of Istanbul’s ferry network to help improve catering and introduce demand-based ticketing.

The lending is to TASS Denizcilik & Ulastirma Hizmetleri Turizm Sanayi & Ticaret AS, the group that took over control of the ferry company in June, the bank said today in an e-mailed statement.

The group led by Souter Investment LLP, owned by U.K.-based Stagecoach Group Plc founder Brian Souter, and Turkish builder Akfen Holding AS purchased the city’s ferry company for $861 million.
