Taking a Dolmus (local bus)… At the lowest tier of the Turkish transport system is the humble dolmus. This is a publicly-run network of minibuses that covers most of the coastal area of Turkey, and some of the populated inland areas. As the routes often circle peninsulas it can be a cheap way to take in some of the most beautiful scenery Turkey has to offer. The route along the Turquoise Coast between Kalkan and Kas especially are too spectacular to be missed. Remember there are no bus stops outside the main towns. There is a bus station in Kalkan so simply stroll down from the villa and there is plenty of help there. Anywhere else, even along the main roads, stand by a shop or restaurant along its route and hold your hand out as if hailing a taxi. You'll also be thankful of the shelter if the bus is running behind schedule. A dolmus should come every 10 minutes or so on popular routes such as the Kalkan to Kas or Patara Beach road. When the dolmus stops double check with the driver that he's going where you want to go… "Patara gidiyor musun?"…Are you going to Patara? Now take a seat and work out how much you have to pay from the price list, usually stuck above the windscreen. Hand the money to the person in the seat in front of you. It gets passed hand-to-hand, man to child to women, all the way up to the driver. He will make out the change when he gets a clear stretch of road with, if you're lucky, one hand on the wheel and hand it back as before, person to person. When you want to stop, shout something appropriate and say good evening…"Iyi aksamlar!.." as you get off
