How to get to... (first read this)

Istanbul is a very large city. However it has an extensive public transportation network. The fare for transportation is reasonable. Getting from one place to the other may take long. Do not get intimidated. Be patient. Depending on the route you choose, you will either take a metro, a Metrobüs, a bus, a Dolmuş, a HAVATAŞ shuttle , a taxi or a sequence of these. Here are some general tips:

You cannot buy ticket on a vehicle. If you plan to use public transport many times, buy a prepaid ISTANBULKART from a vending machine in the metro stations or kiosks all around the city. While buying an IstanbulKart, you must pay a non-refundable 6 TL fee (for the actual card and the service), plus an amount of your choice to load onto the card. You get transfer discount automatically if you use an IstanbulKart. If you will not use public transport except coming from/going to airports, you might buy cards that have several rides in them. With those cards, you do not have transfer discount.

Cabs are usually trustworthy. Yet always make sure that the taxi driver turns the meter on.

The trip durations given below are on the average. There might be drastic traffic jams.

Istanbul Atatürk Airport (IST) and Boğaziçi University South and North Campuses are on the European side of Istanbul.

Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (SAW) is on the Asian side of Istanbul.

IMBM, and Kennedy Lodge are in the South Campus.
