I don't own a car here in Turkey. Although it would be handy, it's not essential. The Public Transport services here are frequent, inexpensive and generally good all around. I also find getting around on the motorbike to be very practical.

Antalya's Original Tramline

Antalya's older tram line starts on the shore to the west of the center at the Antalya Museum near Konyaalti Plaji (Beach) and Antalya Beach Park (the Sheraton Voyager and Falez hotels are here as well). The tram runs eastward along the main seaside boulevard to the city center at Kalekapisi, a convenient gateway to Kaleiçi (Old Antalya).

It then continues east and south and passes Hadrian's Gate and Karaalioglu Park before passing near the deluxe Divan Antalya Hotel Talya and ending on the way to Lara Plaji (Beach) to the east. There are only two trams. They run along a single track, passing one another at a short length of double track near Kalekapisi.

Both trams depart on the hour and half-hour, 07:00 am to 21:00 (9:00 pm) from the termini (east and west), and reach Kalekapisi between 10 and 15 minutes later (so if you want to catch the tram at Kalekapisi, be there at 10 minutes past the hour or 20 minutes before the hour). The one-way fare is TL1.20.

Antalya's New Tramline

In December 2009, an 11 km light rail line opened. It includes one subway station with a rather foreshortened platform. Most of the line is street running in the city center.

Both trams depart on the hour and half-hour, 07:00 am to 21:00 (9:00 pm) from the termini (east and west), and reach Kalekapisi between 10 and 15 minutes later (so if you want to catch the tram at Kalekapisi, be there at 10 minutes past the hour or 20 minutes before the hour). The one-way fare is TL1.20.

Buses

White minibuses that travel a certain route. There are lots of these and go everywhere frequently finishing at around midnight but some routes run all night long. The cost is 1.75 TL for one trip any distance.

Coaches

The bus system covers almost all the parts of the city and goto almost every city in Turkey. They depart from Antalya Bus Station(Otogar). Below are links to main bus companies websites.

Taxis

Taxis are numerous and are recognizable by their yellow color and lighted "taksi" signs on top. Each taxi is metered and there are two different rates. After midnight (24:00) till morning (06:00) it will cost 50% more than the daytime fare.

Camels

With the price of fuel on the up and up Camels may soon be the cheapest form of Transport in the town. As it is, if you do see one on a beach it will cost you about 20TL to go 50 metres.
