a scene from 2004 winter.The snow storm stopped the tram for nearly 2 hours.Kadikoy is at Asian side of the city and has a heritage tram line like Beyoglu in European side.
You must be a very well trained sportsman to use this way of transportation especially during winter time!
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.
well...i was very surprised about taxi prices here and the fact that i wasnt robbed even once i mean in prices i say... good!
its very easy to use buses here, just like in other city else where in the world.
buy the ticket before you go in the bus or you can also buy it inside to the driver.
That is the place to get a train for Anatolia.
Easy, cheapest and the hottest way of transportation.
It's a cheap way of transportation if you compare to other cities.. But attention! Don't pay more than taximeter says and be careful about it!
Istanbul metro is very clean.. It's not so old.. It arrived to Taksim few years ago.. A very usefull way to avoid traffic chaos..
we flew from Stuttgart to Istanbul
public transportation was fine! In fact, it was quite an adventure, since our hotel was in one of the suburbs!
There are two tram lines. The modern one is in Sultanahmet and the old one covers the distance between Taksim Square and the Tunel.
On all buses, destinations and bus numbers are shown on the front. Tickets must be bought before boarding. One of the biggest bus station is near the Taksim Square.
