Metrobus has 8 lines and was opened in Istanbul to make metro and tram less crowded during rush hours. However, it’s still a challenge to squeeze yourself into metro, tram or metrobus during rush hours.

Metrobus has two crucial lines:

34Z line (Zincirlikuyu – Söğütlüçeşme), which can get you from the European side of the city to the Asian side and back;

34 line (Avcılar – Zincirlikuyu), which will connect you to metro’s (M1) line, as well as the two major tram lines, T1 and T4.

Service hours: 24 hours

Service schedule: Every 30 – 60 seconds from 06:00 to 01:00, and every 2 – 8 minutes from 01:00 to 06:00

Fare: Price is fixed at 4 TL ($1.33) if you pay in cash; and ranges from 1.6 TL ($0.53) to 2.95 TL ($0.98) if you pay via Istanbulkart.
