Turkish public transportation networks in 40 provinces will accept contactless fare payments

Virtually the whole of Turkey is well covered by public transport, including long-distance buses, domestic flights, minibusses and ferries. The aged train network is being overhauled, with new high-speed lines linking the capital Ankara with İstanbul, Konya and Sivas. Late booking is the norm for public transport users in Turkey, but reserve well in advance for major public holidays – especially for flights and trains. Car rental rates are reasonable if you look around, and low-season rentals usually considerably cheaper than in high-season. public transport turkey

Residents and tourists using public transport services in 40 provinces across Türkiye will soon be able to make contactless fare payments with their credit, debit or prepaid card without needing to purchase a ticket or local transport pass. public transport turkey

To date, transport operators in 11 Turkish provinces — Balikesir, Elaziğ, Eskişehr, Hatay, Kütahya, Malatya, Mersin, Sakarya, Samsum, Van and Yalova —  have already implemented the fare payment system and it will now be rolled out gradually to cover “nearly half of the cities in Turkey”.

“Thanks to the system that enables the use of contactless foreign payment cards in transportation, the touristic value of the provinces covered in the project will also increase,” technology provider Asis Elektronik explains.

“Domestic or foreign tourists visiting these cities will be able to easily pass through the turnstiles with their contactless cards, without worrying about where to buy a ticket or transportation card to fill up.” If you are planning a tour to Turkey, check out some of the best available tours.
