PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Airports: İstanbul has two airports, the major Istanbul Atatürk International Airport (IST) near Yeşilköy 23 km (14 miles) west of the city center, reachable by Metro; and Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport (SAW) on the Asian side.

If you prefer to travel by public transportation during your stay in Istanbul, your options are below:

Taxi: Taking a taxi is an easy and cheap way to get around. You won't have a problem finding a taxi, day or night. Licensed taxis are bright yellow, with a roof-mounted taksi sign. There's no room for haggling and no need to tip. Cabbies are not necessarily streetwise. If you cross the Bosphorus bridges, the toll will be added to the fare.

Bus system: Buses are useful for heading up the Bosphorus coast to Ortaköy, Arnavutköy, Bebek and beyond. Most city buses (Belediye Otobüsü) are operated by the municipality, but there are also private buses (Halk Otobüsü). Municipal buses are red and white or green; all have IETT written on the front. Private ones are pale blue and green.

The informative website of the IETT www.iett.gov.tr, the local transport authority, has an excellent English version that includes maps and timetables.

Dolmush (shared taxi): The dolmush, meaning full, is point to point shared taxi or jitney that runs between the city's major centers. If you don't get on at the departure point you can flag them down anywhere on their route. The destination of the dolmush is usually placed on the front window.

Payment is made en route but can also be done at the last stop if you are going to the end of the line. Popular routes are Taksim to Teşvikiye, Bostancı, Kadıköy, Bakırköy, Yeşilköy, Kadıköy to Bostancı. The large squarish minibuses are the poorer cousins to the dolmush operating in the same manner. The main minibus line runs from Beşiktaş to the business centers in Balmumcu, Gayrettepe, Levent, Maslak and back down to the Bosphorus at Sarıyer.

Funiculars: The older of these lines is the Tünel (the second in the world after London). Two trains run every 3.5 minutes on a single rail line with a passing loop half way between the termini, and a trip takes 1.5 minutes. 15,000 people are transported daily. The modern funicular running between Kabataş – Taksim Square.

Light Rail: There are 36 stations, including 12 underground and 3 viaduct stations, on the line's 32 km length. The lines are totally segregated from other traffic without level crossings and run underground for 10.2 km.

Metro: The Istanbul Metro is a mass-transit underground railway network that serves the city of İstanbul, Turkey. Founded in 2000, it now includes 10 stations. The system currently consists of one line. This line is a north - south line. It is a serpentine shaped line, and is fully underground. This is the most popular for long distance travelling. This ticket is valid in all metro, tram, light rail, funicular, ferry boat & bus.

Bus Rapid Transit (BRT): The BRT system in İstanbul is called Metrobüs.

Nostalgic Trams: By the end of 1990, a historic tram was put in service along Istiklal Avenue between Taksim and Tünel, which is a single 1.6 km-long line. About 641,000 people were transported by the nostalgic trams in 2003 in European and Asian sides.

Trams: An entire trip takes 42 minutes. The daily transport capacity is 255,000 passengers. End of this line connects to Taksim via Kabataş – Taksim funicular.

Ferryboats (Vapur): Ferryboats sail on 15 lines serving 27 seaports on the shores of Bosphorus and Sea of Marmara. Ferries carry 61 million passengers yearly.

Cable Car (Gondola Lift): Connects the hotels İstanbul Hilton on one side with Parksa Hilton and Swissotel The Bosphorus to the Taksim. The cable line is 333 m long and transports in two cabins with six seats each around 1,000 passengers daily. The trip takes three minutes.

The Marmaray: This is one of the major transportation infrastructure projects in the world at present. The entire upgraded and new railway system will be approximately 76 km long. The Project provides an upgrading of the commuter rail system in Istanbul, connecting Halkalı on the European side with Gebze on the Asian side with an uninterrupted, modern, high-capacity commuter rail system.
