As a ‘tourist’ what are the methods of public transport available to discover Antalya within close proximity to the Liberty Hotels Lara.
Antalya Municipality City buses and Mini-buses.
From the main road infront of the Liberty Hotels Lara, cross to the other side of the road where there is a bus stop. The buses run every 10 minutes. There are 4 bus numbers to look out for; LC07, LC73, LC37 & 511. Ideally take the LC07 as it is more frequently and a more comfortable bus than the others which are mini-buses.
The LC07 is the long, black & red modern city bus which is similar to the modern city buses that are found in most developed countries.
Privately operated by Antalya Municipality, mini-buses and buses are readily available taking you to all parts of the City and in some cases, beyond the City bounderies. Please speak with the Guest Relations team for the latest and most accurate information an how best to utilize the excellent Antalya Municipality bus system.
The Antalya Municipality commuter tram route starts and terminates from Meydan (Aspendos Boulevard) to Kepez (North of the city past the main coach terminus). There are plans to extend the routes to other parts of the city.
This novel and historical tram was donated to Antalya Municipality by the Austrian government. The tramway service runs from outside Antalya Archeological Museum along the cliffs of Konyaaltı Boulevard into Cumhüriyet Square onto Kalekapısı (Roman Clocktower). From the Roman Clocktower the tram passes through Atatürk Boulevard stopping at Hadrians Gate, Atatürks Museum, Isıklar Boulevard and terminates at the old abattoir (Mezbaha) which has since been demolished.
The service begins at; 07.00 until 22.00. The approx fare is 1.40 TL.
