Getting Around in IstanbulEdit This
A hint for taxis: you should insist on using the counter (taximeter). It will always be cheaper! Take care: they have two tariffs: gündüz (for day) and gece (for night). Of course night tarif is more expensive...
About the big city busses: You have to buy the tickets outside the bus at a kiosk. The driver does not sell tickets! In a dolmus or minibüs you just pay the driver, there are no tickets at all.
It is not very common to hitchhike; sometimes from that results a misunderstanding and people expect payment.
