To use public transportation in İstanbul, we advise participants to buy an İstanbul card. You can purchase "İstanbulkart" from the yellow vending machines located in every station of the subway, trams, metrobus, funiculars and some kiosks located near most stops of the public buses. As of February 2019, the cost of the card is only 6 Turkish Liras (TL) (from the machines) or 7 TL (from most kiosks). To reload the card, you can either go to newsstands and small shops (look for the phrase Akbil Dolum Noktası) which offer this service, or use self-service special purpose machines at major transit stations. The machines accept notes of 5, 10, and 20 TL and have instructions in multiple languages. It writes on the machines that it accepts 50 TL too, but it has been cancelled.
