    The public transport system.

    by Askla Written Aug 18, 2015

    Bursa is a city of circa 1,8 million people (as of 2014) and thus depends on a well working public transport system. There is a metro line which in the west forks into two lines, there are two tram lines and a vast bus system.
    Click here for a map of all the transport modes except the buses.
    I post a link to the transport company further down on the page.

    Some bus companies running there.

    by Askla Written Aug 17, 2015

    There are quite manycompanies running buses to/from Bursa. Some of the more well known are Nilüfer, Kamil Koc, Ulusoy, Varan and Metro Turizm.
    I used Nilüfer and was very pleased. There was a host on board serving beverages and some snacks. The ticket cost me 24 YTL and was bought direct from the counter in Istanbul the same morning.

    Bus station.

    by Askla Written Aug 17, 2015

    Bursa long distance bus station is located quite a bit outside town, along the Yalova road. But there are local buses going into Bursa city centre. The cost for one ride in May 2012 was 2 YTL.
    The road/street into the centre was quite bumpy, going the other way in some different streets were even worse! The distance is about 10 km and takes 35 - 40 minutes.
    The bus station is rather large with at least 60 bays. Inside the terminal building you will find a lot of food outlets, shops for flowers, suitcases, food stuff, newspapers and books, as well as many ticket counters for the different bus companies. Of course toilets and rest rooms. A few ATM:s. There is what there should be.

    Budo Bursa Mudanya - Istanbul seaway

    by hokomoko Written Apr 14, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very reasonable and easy way to trip between Bursa and Istanbul is to sail with Budo seabuses.
    The Istanbul pier is connected with the metro and tram system. At Bursa Mudanya pier it is also connected to the Bursa center by bus and metro.

    Prices;
    Adults; 18 Turkish Lira
    +65 years ; 14 Turkish Lira

    Time table;
    From Kabatas to Mudanya;

    From Mudanya to Kabatas;
    10.00 and 18.00

    Bus

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Oct 2, 2012

    As I have noted elsewhere, travel through Turkey by bus is easy, comfortable, fast, and reasonable. This is true of Bursa, a major city, which has a large and nice bus station (otogar). One can catch a huge range of buses here, from smaller local-run buses going to nearby cities and provinces, or the fancier long-haul buses, with routes going directly to all the major cities and regional centres around the country. They run frequently and are generally extremely clean, well-run, and comfortable, with snacks, tea, movies, etc., on the longer-haul buses.

    To/from Istanbul

    by DSwede Written Aug 28, 2012

    There is no train. Bus is possible, but if you take the bus the entire way, you have to cross the bridge, fight possible traffic and cross the city.

    Personally, I'd recommend taking the ferry from Yenikapi terminal to Yalova. From there you can take a bus or dolmus to Bursa. You can find these right outside the ferry terminal.

    Even if you were driving yourself, this ferry allows cars which I recommend again to avoid the traffic and extra distance driving.

    Seabus to save time

    by muratkorman Written May 10, 2012

    Seabus is the fast way of reaching Bursa from Istanbul. From Yenikapi seabus terminal, you can reach Bursa in 1.5 hours. The first hour will be with the seabus and the last half hour will be with the connecting shuttle bus. The price varies according to demand, but this way of travel definitely saves time. You can find the schedule in the link provided below.

    Regular buses to Bursa

    by muratkorman Written May 10, 2012

    There are many bus companies operating between Istanbul and Bursa. I haven't particularly provided any company name as there are several available. If you think about a short escapade, all you need to do is to get to bus terminal and catch the first bus leaving. Within this bus trip, you also have a ferry ride between Eskihisar and Topcular to cut the bus ride short along Gemlik Bay. The whole trip should take about 4 hours with 40 minutes of ferry included. You can feed the seagulls which follow the ferry until the end of the ferry trip. Reaching Bursa by bus is cheaper compared to taking the seabus. However, it takes more time. If you have limited budget and enough time, take the bus. If your time is limited, I suggest you take the seabus from Istanbul.

    Parking in the city

    by DSwede Written Apr 18, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of the places of interest have parking. The city can be fairly busy and parking difficult to find, but street parking is always an option. Look at the signs because some streets allow parking only for deliveries and cargo.

    For most of the sites in the central city area, there is a parking garage near the shopping mall, just to the side of Kozahan market and Ulucami mosque.

    Flying in From the UK

    by vichatherly Updated Feb 24, 2011

    Getting to Bursa is not as tricky as it looks, as long as you do some sort of planning.

    I flew from London Heathrow (LHR) to Istanbul (IST), an early morning four hour trip, cost £220.

    Then it was taxi bus to the Yenikapi ferry terminal and a fast cat across the water, a bus to the metro station and then a metro train into Bursa city centre.

    Speedy Ferry from Istanbul

    by vichatherly Updated Jan 10, 2011

    It cost me 21TL for the single trip from Istanbul to Güzelyalý on the speedy sea cat ferry.

    It took just under two hours for the trip, and bearing in mind it was in November, was very smooth.

    The only downside was that you couldn't go out side and enjoy the sea air.

    Fast Catamaran Ferry by IDO

    by June.b Written May 7, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I took the fast ferry (IDO) from Yenikapi ferry port, walking distance from the Beyazid tram station near my hotel, but that was a ferry to Yalova because I am bound for Iznik prior to Bursa. Although, this same ferry to Yalova can also be taken if you're going to |Bursa (YTL12). Problem with this is that, you have to take a long trip from Yalova to Bursa, enduring the horrible traffic along the way.

    For me, when I arrive at Yalova, I took a YTL7.50 / an hour or so minibus ride to Iznik - wander around the town of Iznik - and then took the minibus also YTL7.50 / an hour ride to Bursa central bus terminal and a city bus (yellow bus at YTL1) to the center of Bursa.

    BUT there's an option to avoid the traffic if you're goin' directo to Bursa --

    ... instead of taking the ferry to Yalova - at the same Yanikapi port in Istanbul - take the ferry goin' to Guzelyali (Bursa)

    ... fare is more expensive at YTL20,

    ... when you arrive at Guzelyali which is in fact a town near Bursa, take a minibus or the city bus to the Metro station called "Organize Sanayi Bölgesi",

    ... take the Metro upto ªehreküstü station, get off and walk up to the ground level and you'll see that you are already at the centre's roundabout or circle where you'll find a statue, start from there and work your way to Ulu Camii on that street just at the back of the statue.
