  • Havas

Here is a link for this bus. This bus departs every 30 minutes. There is always a bus for the flights. It costs 10 TL . You can pay in the bus. This bus doesn’t go to Kizilay, its final destination is AŞTİ (Ankara intercity coach terminal). So you should take metro to go to Kizilay. Tickets are sold in the AŞTİ metro station.

You use the underground way to pass the road and then you reach the MiniBus Station. There are many MiniBuses. You should ask and find the Minibus that goes to ODTÜ (Turkish name of METU, Middle East Technical University). There is a security check in the entrance of the university. Only university students can enter the university. So you should say that you came for the Android Developer Days Conference. Then you should get off the minibus at ODTÜ KKM (name of the Venue).

From Venue to Kızılay

You can use the minibuses to go to Kizilay. You can get on the minibus from the bus stop in front of ODTÜ KKM. Cost is same.

You can use the BelkoAir busses to go to Airport. You can get on the bus from the bus stop where you get off the bus when coming from the Airport. The same bus stop is used for going to and coming from the Airport. Cost is same. The busses depart in every 20 min. If you prefer to go to Airport with Havas, you should go to the AŞTİ using the metro from the Kizilay station.
