Dolmus and Taxi Information

If anyone has any updated prices please feel free to add on

Transport in Icmeler is provided by small mini bus vehicles these locally are called Dolmus they are couloured Cream and Orange you can catch these to go into Marmaris simply by waving your hand at one, If it has space for you it will stop if it doesn't stop they are full they frequently run all day long. the price to use this in season 2011 was 2.50 lira

Icmeler also has a local bus service that serves both the center of Icmeler and the Old village and to Marmaris the price to use this in season 2011 was approx 1.50 Lira to Marmaris or if you caught the bus in the Old village and wished to travel to the center of Icmeler the price to use this in season 2011 was approx 50 Kouros again this Dolmus is Cream and Orange but is bigger than the normal Independant Dolmus above

Another form of Transport is the National bus services, This station is called the Octogar which is situated on your left hand side as you come into Icmeler these buses can Transport you everywhere in Turkey in comfort, Some contain onboard Toilites and onboard Tea/Coffee water facilitys.

All taxi's are yellow in coulour and have onboard meters to calculate the price you will see them in Taxi ranks which are situated all over the center of the resort, However after midnight prices are doubled.

@suemackey<<<Another form of Transport is the National bus services, This station is called the Octogar which is situated on your left hand side as you come into Icmeler these buses can Transport you everywhere in Turkey in comfort>>>

On 19 April after we've enjoyed our 10 nights in Icmeler, we're then off to Calis Beach.

The above suggests that we can catch the long-distance bus from the otogar in Icmeler. Is that correct, or do we have to catch the bus from the otogar in Marmaris?

Cheers LL

Hi Lancasterlad

I copied the info off the old top questions which are added on by previous DE's as the topic had closed and no further info could be added.

There is a bus station in Icmeler it is supposed to be moving to by Tanses, not sure if it has yet this year, the best idea especially if you have a lot of luggage is to either ask where you are staying if they will take you to the main Octogar in Marmaris or ask them to order a taxi but dont forget to ask for the price before you get into the taxi, hope this helps and have a wonderful holiday.

I have been informed that dolmus has now gone up to 2.75 lira this season also

Thanks all.

We've stayed in Istanbul (several times), Ankara, Urgup, Antalya, Side and Alanya, so we're used to any sly tactics that taxi drivers use. And dolmus' will be what we'll be using most of the time.

Only one more sleep!

If a taxi driver does not put on his meter ask him to do so immediately, If you dont he will charge you anything he wants to, Fail to pay him that and he calls Police, I have heard this happen to people many many times in Icmeler.

Take the Dolmus in Icmeler to the Dolmus station in Marmaris then catch the Octogar Dolmus do remember when ytou get to the Octogar to ask for a direct Bus as if you dont you may well find your stopping everywhere en route to Fethiye/Calis beach.
