There is a selection of buses, dolmus buses, underground and taxis for your commuting in Ankara. Taxis can be located anywhere. Trustworthy and quick outside rush-hours.Prefer the ones waiting for customers at designed spots. Buses: You will need an EGO kart to use public buses (that can be bought from kiosks or büfe/markets) or 2TL change for the private buses (there is a person collecting the ticket price when you enter). For routes see the interactive map. http://www.ego.gov.tr/EN/indexEN.asp The underground has two lines Metro and Ankaray and you can use an EGO kart to commute. The dolmus buses are fast and economic way of travelling around but you need to know the specific spots that they launch from.
