Istanbul Bus Stations

Jump to last reply

While trying to get fare and schedule information on the Kamilkoc web site I came across three bus stations for Istanbul.
Istanbul Otogar
Istanbul Alibekoy
Istanbul Umraniye/Oudullu

Other research indicates that there are two main bus stations in Istanbul. One is called
The Büyük Otogar (Grand Bus Station), also known as Esenler Otogar, located in the Bayrampasa district. It is 10 km away from Sultanahmet Square.
The other bus station, Harem Otogar, is located on the Asian side in Üsküdar.

So can someone explain (a) why don't the names match? and (b) which of these 5 station names are synonymous? (if at all )

Thanks so much.
