The public transportation in Istanbul is an integrated system administrated by the local government. The system can only be accessed by using electronic cards. Having these card will give you access to all public transport means in Istanbul, except private ones.

The card comes with no credit; therefore, you first need to credit money to the card in order to be able to use it for your rides. Crediting the card is quite simple, just place the card in the right place on the yellow machines, like the one where you purchased the card, wait for the card to be scanned and deposit cash to load your Istanbulkart. Keep in mind that coins are not accepted by the machines and the machine won’t give you any change. For that reason, credit as low as you need for your trips.
Once the card is loaded, you will be able to ride with discounts. At stations or within the busses where the Istanbulkart is accepted, there will be card readers; just bring your card close once for each passenger you want to pay for.
The card is not personal and can be used my multiple individuals. You do not have to scan (pay) for kids that are under the age of 6.

This public transportation card can be bought at the Congress venue or airport.
