What is Dolmush and How to Travel
The Dolmus (dolmush)is typically minibuses travelling relatively short distances. A dolmus usually waits and starts in the bus station (Otogar) until it is full and then leaves.
You can board a dolmus anywhere on its route by signaling it to stop for you. Similarly you can get off at a convenient point anywhere along the route. The destination of the dolmus is posted in the windscreen. In summer the latest hour of departure of the minibuses or dolmus is 7.30pm.
