Transportation to and around Ayvalik

Turkey's primary international airports, Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, and Dalaman are connected by 20 scheduled airlines all over the world. Turkish Airlines (THY), Turkish State Railways and a number of intercity bus services are the main modes of travel. Though somewhat crowded, the local buses, share cabs and minibuses are dependable. Dolmus (share taxis) are cheapest, and they take and drop passengers at different places daily from 7 AM till midnight depending on itinerary. Taxis (all yellow cars with controlled taximeter), more expensive than Dolmus, are readily available everywhere.

During summer, ferry service is available for the Greek island Lesvos. Most vacation passengers prefer other Greek-Turkish ferries from Çesme to Chios, Kusadasi to Samos, Bodrum to Kos, or Marmaris to Rhodes.
