Transportation

The most convenient way of arriving to the city center from the airport is to take the Havatas shuttle service, leaving the airport at every half hour. It is both efficient and reasonably priced at 11 Turkish Liras. The shuttle will drop you close to Taksim square, in front of Point Hotel.

If you prefer public transportation, you can walk from here to Taksim square Metro station located 600 meters away. You will need to take the M2 Yenikapi-Haciosman metro line towards “Haciosman” direction. You will get off two stops after at the “Sisli-Mecidiyekoy” stop.

After exiting at Sisli Metro stop, the Incubation Center, is only 10 minute walking distance away. Similarly, you can walk to the Marriott Hotel, in 5 minutes. From Sisli Metro stop to Grand Cevahir Hotel, you can walk for 20 minutes or take a cab, which should charge around 10 Turkish Liras. You can find a Google map with locations and walking routes marked here.

Alternatively, you can take a cab to your destination right after you get off from the Havatas shuttle. Please cross the street and take the cab in front of the Divan hotel to avoid a detour. For Incubation Center, please hand in the Havatas Stop to Incubation Center leaflet to the cab driver. Similar leaflets for Marriott and Grand Cevahir are also available. The cab fare to either Grand Cevahir, Marriott or the Incubation Center should be between 10 to 20 Turkish Liras, as all three destinations are closely located.

If you prefer to take a cab directly from the Airport you can hand in the corresponding leaflet for Incubation Center, Grand Cevahir or Marriott to the cab driver. For all, the fare should be less than 55 Turkish Liras. If you encounter any problems with the cab drivers or the fare, feel free to call Basak Alper at +90 553 321 00 45, or Metin Sezgin at +90 537 874 66 64.
