Travelling by bus

Hi, I have just joined Tlf and thought some ne may be able to provide information regarding travelling from Fethiye to Altinkum by bus.
I enquire date the bus station in Fethiye and was informed there are a number of serves, departing daily to Aydin, but I understand if I travelled to Aydin I would then have to back track to Altnkum.
Does anyone know if there direct departures from Fethiye to Altinkum, (If so the bus company name and departure times). Would it be better if I caught a bus from Fethiye to Dalaman, or some other centre and changed there for a bus t Altinkum.
Do bus services go into Altinkum or do I have to alight in Didim and catch a local bus from there.

Any information appreciate

Bari

Re: Travelling by bus

AS far as I know you either travel via Aydin, or in the summer months via Bodrum, we have done it both ways, but will be doing this trip again in May and will use Parmakale to Aydin then Didim Seyhat into Altinkum

Re: Travelling by bus

It's a nice relaxed journey of about 6hrs.
The smaller bus from Aydin not so comfortable,
but bearable.
Once it gets to Didim it then goes down the hill
to Altinkum front before heading to Didim otogar,
so no need to change onto a dolmus.

Hello Sharon,
Thanks for your message. I will probably be travelling on April 7th, so looks like it will be via Aydin.

Re: Travelling by bus

Hi ColCol

Thanks for your message, any idea how frequently services run from Aydin and how long they take to reach Altinkum
Does the bus to Altinkum depart from the same otogar in Aydin that I will arrive in when travelling from Fethiye or will I have to transfer to a different otogar ?

Re: Travelling by bus

Hi Bary,

the buses at Aydin are all in the same area, you get off the Feithey bus, and you will see across to your left the smaller buses and they will all be calling out assorted towns. The straight through bus runs hourly, so you might be quicker getting the bus to Soke and then transfer onto the Altinkum bus, the buses pull in opposite each other, and the Aydin-Altinkum bus takes about 2 hours, the guys at the bus station all speak some English so you wont have any problems,

Re: Travelling by bus

The busses normally start from near the exit to the bus station and usually have Didim Seyahat or Soke Seyahat on their sides.

The Didim ones start on the top of the hour.
