Historic Tram of Istiklal Road Taksim

Historic Tram of Istiklal Road Taksim
An absolute must do whilst in Istanbul is to ride this cute, two carriage, red and white, wood trimmed interior tram that runs up and down Istiklal Road ( Caddesi ) three times an hour.

The tram began life in 1875, was taken out of service in 1961 and reinstated in 1990.

It trundles along through the crowds on the street often with young boys hanging off its platforms and when you board the tram you can either pay in cash or use an Akbil, which is an electronic transit pass similar to the Oyster card used in London, England.
