Ride in a local dolmuş is a great way to reach any place in the city or its suburbs quickly, inexpensively and colorfully.
Dolmus is a small, cozy minivan which you can find on almost every street in the city. In translation from Turkish it means stuffed or crowded, by tradition a peculiar bus starts to move from the place only when all the seats are occupied.
How to do?
1. Choose the direction in which you want to go. Carefully study the route (it is written directly on the windshield).
2. If you are not at the final stop, but somewhere in the middle of the route, it's enough just to wave your hand so that the driver stoped and you could get in.
3. Prepare money in advance and preferably without change, the average price is from 3 to 7 liras.
4. When the minibus starts - pay the fare.
5. You will never forget such a colorful ride, especially if you decide to ride in a crowded dolt-bus at rush hour.
