Trafi Türkiye is probably the most useful app when it comes to finding the way by public transportation in Istanbul. And public transportation in this case covers bus, ferry, metrobus, metro/funicular, dolmuş and tram. Always there are multiple routes provided which allows to pick the most convenient one, without buses, with less walking, with ferries - you name it. Once you choose the route, it provides a listing of all the stops along the way with times, including any interchanges if necessary, a map of the journey, the approximate time it will take you to reach your final destination, and the total price. Also it fetches and displays real time information, even while using the transport. Together with showing the location on a map one always knows where one is on the actual journey and how to proceed where and when. Very useful in the quite hectic and chaotic traffic of Istanbul. Bonus: It is available in English and for Android and iOS.


Another trafic app, Moovit, but Moovit is not only working for Istanbul, also for a lot of others cities worldwide. So it is kind of the perfect transportation app for travelers.
