Travel and Accommodation

The METU Campus is located in west Ankara on Eskişehir Road, about 45 km away from Esenboğa Airport. However, Ankara municipality offers public bus transports called ‘Belko Air’ to and from the airport. The bus stops on multiple locations including Ulus, Kızılay, and AŞTİ (Ankara Intercity Bus Terminal). The bus trip from the airport to AŞTİ takes about 45 minutes, and the price is 8 TL. For those who wish to come directly to the campus from the airport, taxis are available at the airport and the ride costs about 100 TL.

The AŞTİ stop is very close to the METU Campus. A taxi ride from there to the campus takes about 10 minutes and should cost about 30 TL. The Ulus-ODTÜ minibus that passes in front of AŞTİ is a cheap alternative. There are minibuses regularly running to the campus from Ayrancı, Ulus, and Kızılay (Güvenpark). 

The newly-opened metro line between Kızılay and Çayyolu has made it quite easy and fast to get to METU campus from different locations. From the main bus station or the train station, there are direct buses to Kızılay. From Kızılay, one can take the Kızılay-Cayyolu Metro line and get off at ODTU Station, which is at the main gate (A1) of the campus.
