I'd like to go by bus directly from Tbilisi to Istanbul.

My questions are:

  1. What companies run on the route (please list as many as you know)?

  2. What bus Station in Tbilisi does each Company operate from?

    Duplicate does not answer where the asker should be catching the bus from in Tbilisi. All the answers talk about the location of the offices in Batumi, which isn't helpful for this question.

    @Karlson and other close voters. Seriously. Batumi and Tblisi are different cities. They're at opposite ends of Georgia. Batumi is on the Western edge of the border with Turkey, Tblisi is in Eastern Georgia, and there are routes into Turkey from Tblisi that aren't via Batumi. That question is therefore related, not a duplicate. We've been over this. Why does this keep happening? Commented Apr 26, 2016 at 10:23
  • Note that at this distance it's probably cheaper to take a plane.

1 Answer 1


Metro Turizm runs two direct buses a day. Lüks Karadeniz runs one bus a day. It seems like both leave from the central Ortachala Bus Station.

It's helpful to know Tbilisi (Gerogria) = Tiflis (Gürcistan) in Turkish for their search fields.

  • I know of Metro Turizm but I never found any info saying it leaves from Ortachala. Thanks for that
