The Mugla regional council has introduced a new and great value bus service linking Fethiye with Dalaman Airport.
For the People
The new service is the first time, to our knowledge, that a public transport service has been operated directly to and from Dalaman Airport to Fethiye.
The regular service, which uses midi style buses, operates from 6 am in the morning until 9:30 pm in the evening with up to 12 journeys a day each way in the summer.
From Fethiye the service at Fethiye bus station (Otogar).
The service is operated by a the Muttas company and the buses can be easily identified by the livery as seen in the pictures.
Great Value Bus Fare Between Dalaman Airport and Fethiye
Many travellers will be pleased to learn that the journey will be good value too.
The fare of 7.50 TL each way slashes the costs of travel to and from the airport.
Previously one of the cheapest ways to travel was by using the private Havas bus service. That cost 10 TL each way.
Will the Service be Right for You?
That question depends on a number of things. Where you are going to, when will your flight arrive or depart and how many are in your group.
Certainly for singles or couple who are travelling independently, are arriving or departing during the service times and don’t mind taking a dolmus to their final destination once in Fethiye then this service could be ideal.
However, for families who are staying in a villa off the beaten track a private transfer or car hire are probably still the most practical and best value. So it all depends on travellers circumstances.
