How to get around Istanbul
Istanbul transportation: you’re spoiled for choice
When it comes to public transportation in Istanbul, there are an amazing number of options. You can choose to travel by taxi, limo, minibus, train, ferry, underground by metro or funicular railway, or get some stunning bird’s eye views from a cable car – all part of the same public transit system!
Watch out for the traffic jams though
Our big warning: Istanbul traffic jams can be the stuff of nightmares! It’s therefore a good idea to try to find transport options such as the metro that don’t rely on the roads. It’s such a shame to sit in fuming traffic and waste precious visiting time.
