Turgut Ozal University bears the name of the Turkish Prime Minister and later the eighth president (1982-1993). President Ozal was quite revolutinary in his visionary reforms during that period and placed a strong emphasis on the importance and value on education, stating that “the most rewarding investment a nation can make is the investment in human resources and education”. He brought about important developments in expanding Turkey’s outlook abroad and enhancing freedoms necessary for far-reaching improvement in institutions of higher education. He thus directed Turkey toward a position of a greater effectiveness and influence, one that would attain the standards of developed countries.

Turgut Ozal University was estalished in 2009 by Law (Act No: 5913; Official Gazette [1] published on 7 July 2009 and Issue No: 22281) in Ankara as a foundation University. It seeks to become one of the best in the country by educating analytical, unbiased students who can capture, adapt, and surpass current levels of knowledge while embracing and maintaining an open perspective.

To this end, our university desires to host qualified students who have foreign language proficiency, and who conduct research and think deeply in a multi-cultural and international environment. We aim to provide a modern infrastructure and educational environment for research, supported by an active and dynamic academic staff. Our university staff members, known in research and critically-reviewed publications, will also help students in career planning, enabling them to fully comply with current requirements, as well as applying themselves to lifelong learning according to contemporary standards.

We welcome those students who have a high degree of discipline in individual work and exhibit motivation, initiative and leadership properties based on human and moral values; who, with a sense of responsibility and respect for human rights and freedom, seek a path of research with an inquisitive spirit; who desire to successfully integrate into society as individuals educated within the framework of multi-dimensional programs with current textbooks and publications; and who pursue interactive methods and establish excellent communication skills with other students to gain a functional and successful place in today’s world.

In summary, Turgut Ozal University will be a competitive university providing solutions for our world with national, regional, and global significance.

Ankara is well connected by a good public transport network system. Private and public bus operators compete for your patronage and there are the 'dolmus' minibus transport providers that offer rapid tranfers and get you to your connection points. The underground subway 'Metro' is highly efficient which runs between outer suburbs and the interstate bus terminal 'ASTI'. Taxis are readily available and are probably the best way to get to your destination, relatively inexpensive for the time poor traveller

The city has a dense public bus network, a two-line subway called Ankara Metrosu and a single line suburban railway called Ankara Banliyo Treni.

For tourists, Ankara’s public transit system, particularly the public bus network, can be difficult to figure out, because maps are rare and all information is in Turkish. Nor is there any access provided for disabled travellers in any form of public transport. Buses and metros tend to be very crowded during rush hours, especially on Mondays and Fridays.

If you know the city well, public transportation, especially the metro, is an ideal, easy, quick and cheap way to get around particularly for longer distances. For shorter distances taxis are an easy, quick and cheap way to get around.

By bus

There are two types of public buses in Ankara; those run by the Ankara Municipality named Ankara Belediye Otobusleri (EGO) and those run by a private corporation named Ankara Ozel Halk Otobusleri (OHO). You can differentiate these two types by their colors. EGO-run buses are white and blue while OHO-run buses are blue. Both types of these public buses use the same bus network and bus stops.

Ankara Municipal Buses

The Ankara Municipal Buses, named Ankara Belediye Otobusleri (EGO), consists of an extensive and dense bus network, and is owned and operated by the Ankara Municipality.

Payment system for municipal buses is based on multi-use magnetic cards which is also used for the metro; starting from the smallest available which is the 2-unit cards which cost 3.50 TL, 3-unit cards which cost 5.25 TL, 5-unit cards which cost 8.75 TL, 10-unit cards which cost 17.50 TL and 20-unit cards which cost 35.00 TL [1].  For Smart cards and multi-ride magnetic cards - up to 2 transfers have been allowed within the time period of 75 minutes.A cost of 0,67 kurus will be deducted for each transfer.There will be no charge for transfers on discount cards. Free transfers can be done within 75 minutes. The magnetic cards cannot be purchased in buses and have to be purchased beforehand at kiosks and metro stations.

Unfortunately, no stops and maps are displayed in the buses and bus stops nor announced by voice in the buses. However, there is a Turkish web site which can be used to plan bus trips ahead of time. The site can be partially translated using Google translator. The site is : [2]

Ankara Non-Municipal Public Buses

The Ankara Non-Municipal Public Buses, Ankara Ozel Halk Otobusleri (OHO), consists of an extensive and dense bus network, operated by a private corporation.

Payment system for non-municipal buses is with cash. The ticket, which is only a one-way ticket, is purchased in buses at a cost of 2.00 TL.

Unfortunately, no stops and maps are displayed in the buses and bus stops nor announced by voice in the buses.


Dolmus are private run minibuses. They are as common as buses and run on their specific routes. Guven Park at Kizilay Square is the main stop of dolmus's, running all sides of central Ankara. You can get in and out anywhere on their route, and they stop the same way you catch a taxi with your hand. The prices range depending on your departure point and destination, but typically not more than a two to three liras.

By train

Ankara Metro

The Ankara Metro, named Ankara Metrosu, consists of three (four, if you count Batikent-OSB Torekent as a separate line) metro lines, which are called Ankaray and Ankara Metro which is owned and operated by the Ankara Municipality [3].
