Dolmuş



A Turkish dolmus (pronounced DOHL-moosh) is a shared taxi or minibus running a predetermined route, with each passenger paying only a portion of the normal fare.

Dolmus means "filled" and the car or minibus waits at the beginning of its route until most, or all of its seats are filled. Passengers can get out anywhere along the route, or ride to the end, for a single set fare that's the same for all passengers, no matter what their destination.

Fares are usually about YTL 1 within a city, although city to village routes, which tend to be longer, may have higher fares but will still be far less than a private taxi.
