So easy! Picked up our passes at the airport. We found it outside Gate 13, where commercial transportation picks up. The passes were loaded and worked with no problems making “topping off” not needed. We mainly used the train. We had a map but it would have been helpful to know when you should change trains to avoid using a ride. After swiping twice for a one swipe trip, a friendly passenger advised us to get off and then back on from Sultanhamet to Kabatas T1. Otherwise, made our travels smoother!

The smartest thing I did before my arrival is purchase 2 City Transporation passes which we used on tram, ferry rides and Metro. Made everthing so easy for our trip!

Cards were waiting for us at the hotel. Ordered the 10 Journey card, have used it for metro and bus, no issues. Just about to use on Ferry, very convenient!

The ticket office was not easy to find but the staff is professional and gave me the Istanbul card that I had reserved.

was delivered and given to me on arrival so I could use it immediately
