    Istanbul tram from Sultanahmet to the new city has been a historic symbol of this city. Otherwise the main mode of local public transport is bus.

    A busy road in Istanbul

    Trams, busses and taxis........... transportation is not a problem for moving around Istanbul, but there is always heavy rush on the roads.

    There are two "nostalgic" tramlines in Istanbul. One is going up and down Istiklal Caddesi and the other is going in a circle around Kadiköy and Moda on the Asian side.

    From Sirkeci there are ferrys (carferrys) to Harem about every half an hour. The crossing takes 15 minutes and costs
    1 000 000 TL. The otogar is just next to where the ferry stops.

    This is the way of tourists' transportation at Prince's and Chalki Island. You can take the "long" or the "short" ride and the driver will show you around.

    its very easy to use buses here, just like in other city else where in the world.
