Ankara Transport


Ankara has a cheap and quick underground Metro, with two lines. One runs from Batikent in the north of the city to the central Kizilay area, and the second connects the Intercity Bus Station in the west through Kizilay to Dikimevi. Electronic tickets (sold in batches of five) can be bought at stations and used on the blue and red municipal buses as well. The Metro operates from 6am to midnight. Private buses are green or blue and passengers pay in cash when boarding. The favoured form of transport for visitors is the Dolmus minibus taxi system and taxis can be flagged in the street. Fares depend on the distance covered. There are also regular metered taxis available.
