Sea transportation is very important in Istanbul, because the city is completely covered by the sea. Although land transportation has come to the fore in the city until now, sea transportation is also used extensively. For sea taxi, 100 TL for 0-2 miles, 75 TL per mile for 1-4 miles, 60 TL per mile for 4-8 miles, 48 TL per mile for 8 miles and beyond.

Taxi fares in Istanbul are determined by UKOME. Fares are based on criteria such as waiting time, total distance in metres, and opening fee. However, taxi drivers never like the fare and always ask for a higher raise. Taxi usage rates decrease after each hike, and this time they complain that there are no customers.
