"One or two AKBIL for two visitors" Akbil Transit Pass - Now Replaced by Istanbulkart Tip by AlperIst

Hi Samer,

One AKBIL is enough for two, You can buy AKBIL (smart ticket) chip for 6 YTL and fill it as much as you can. It charges 1.30 YTL when you take a tram/bus/ferry/boat/tünel/metro with slight differences. After your first vehicle, your next 5 transfers will cost only 0.65YTL, but remember that only one of you will utilize this transfer discount. The second touch will charge you full price. So, it depends how much you will use public transport to decide one or two AKBIL is more convenient for you.
