Istanbul is a huge city to wander around. there are so many places to visit that are away from each other. therefore, knowing your ways to transport in istanbul is very crucial. luckily, there are always new projects planning to improve the transportation in the city. however, istanbul is not only a big city but also a very crowded one. therefore, despite all the projects happening, it could be difficult to transport at times. for instance, during rush hours (between 8 am and 9 am, and between 5 pm and 8 pm), it is excruciating to go somewhere in istanbul, especially with a private car or a taxi. public transportation is relatively better when you do not want to deal with traffic or find a place to park the car.
