Getting to Büyük Mecidiye Cami

Jump to last reply

What are the options to get to Ulus29 in Istanbul from the Sultan Ahmet square weekday around 18:00? I looks like doing this trip during the rush hour means practically solid red traffic jam on Bing map traffic view. I am interested to see if the boat option 3 is possible.

1. Taxi - looks like traffic jam until past the Bosphorus bridge.
2. Metro to Gayrettepe then taxi to Ulus29. This looks like a super crowded metro around 6pm.
3. Boat to Ortaköy, spend some time at a small square near Büyük Mecidiye Cami I have seen in several movies, then take a taxi.

Looking at the boat schedule, there seems to be boats from Eminönü-->Ortaköy during the evening rush hour.

And the line is BOĞAZ HATTI at 2.15TL using an Istanbulkart.

When look at the google map, BOĞAZ HATTI seems to dock at iskele on the east side of the Galata Bridge instead on the west side. Is this correct?

Is 17:50 BOĞAZ HATTI boat just as crowded a metro?

Is there place to catch a taxi near the Ortaköy ferry boat dock?
