Public transportation has been active in this city since 1869, with the first railway terminal being built in 1890.
The layout of the city was built thousands of years before accessibility was a priority and its hilly landscape makes traveling difficult.
Due to hilly topography, taxis are the best bet for traveling long, high distances, though most don’t fit wheelchairs.
The tram is the most accessible way to get around Istanbul, with most stations fully accessible, except for the Karaköy, Eminönü, Yusufpasa, Findikzade, Çapa –Sehremini, and Topkapi stations.
Discounted fares for those with disabilities on funicular, tourist sites, and more.
All Ferry terminals have wheelchair access and tactile paving Tourist attractions like the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia are mostly wheelchair accessible.
