Ankara Transportation: 43 reviews and 49 photos


Ankara otogar is called ASTI or Terminal and it is huge. As you arrive you should ask for a service to the area you want to go to as many companies have <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=free&v=55">free</a> transport from ASTI. One of the boys working on the bus I arrived with walked with me to show me the right place for the service, as it was not next to where the bus arrived. The service then took me all the way to my <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=hotel&v=55">hotel</a> in Ulus.

Leaving Ankara I arrived to ASTI without having a <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=ticket&v=55">ticket</a> in advance. It can be a difficult choise where to turn as there are more then 100 <a href="http://www.ntsearch.com/search.php?q=ticket&v=55">ticket</a> counters. As I was going to Bogazkale I did what my guidebook suggested. To be sure not to be dropped on the highwy outside Sungurlu I went to ticketcounter 37 and bought a ticket with Hattusas buscompany.

To go to ASTI I took a dolmush from Ulus. It was not leaving from Ulus Meydani but from a small street somewhere close.
