DOLMUSES & MIDIBUSES
Dolmuses started life as shared taxis that operated on set routes for flat fares but these days they are very often Intercity minibuses. (They also provide local transport within a city) Some wait until every seat is taken taken before starting out, others operate at set times. You will usually use them to get between small towns and villages.
To le the driver know that you want to hop out, say 'inecek var' ( someone wants to get out).
Minibuses generally operate on routes that are too long for dolmuses, yet not quite popular enough for full-size buses. They usually have narrow seats with rigid upright backs, not at all comfortable on long stretches. Try to avoid the midibuses that ply the long and winding road from Bodrum to Marmaris to Antalya via Fethiye.
