It’s easy to lose yourself In Istanbul’s grandiose history. Formerly known as Byzantium and Constantinople, today Istanbul is a bustling metropolis peppered with buildings that reflect the various peoples and empires that have ruled the city. No longer the capital of Turkey since 1923, its influence has not faded, still holding the seat as the country’s business and cultural center. It is here where new trends are constantly created, the shopping is world class, and the nightlife pulsates around Taksim Square.
Metrobüs is a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system that operates around Istanbul and is close to attractions like Akasya Mall, Istanbul Cevahir, and Marmara Park. There are about 45 Metrobüs stops covering around 50 km line from Söğütlüçeşme in Asia to Beylikdüzü Sondurak/TÜYAP in Europe. Metrobüs costs 5.49 TL for 1 stop and 11.38 TL for 34 stops and above. Before getting on the bus, make sure you have topped up your Istanbul Card balance for payment.
