Venue

Arslanbey Hasan Yılmaz Cultural Center

How to Reach Conference Venue?

Important Notes:

  1. Be aware of the interchangeable use of Kocaeli and İzmit; Kocaeli is the name of the province/greater municipality, and İzmit is the name of the central town.
  2. Be sure to exchange your Money at the airport for the metro train and bus tickets.

To reach to the Conference Venue (Hasan Yılmaz Kültür Merkezi), you can use municipality transportation service (either by minibuses or by buses) from two basic bus stops:

  1. IF you come to Kocaeli from İstanbul,

Once you get on the bus, tell the service person, who will be checking the tickets (He will ask you where you will get off) that you will go to the Halkevi.

When you get off in Halkevi Stop, you will see a footbridge for passing highway. On the other side of the highway, you will also see Shell Gas Station.

The bridge looks like this one: 

On the footbridge, there are two exit points; first one is for side road at which bus stops will take place and the second one is for the other side of the street at which taxi station (“EMEK TAXI”) are found.[1] After you get the bus stop at the side road (not the other side of the road); you can take bus number 201 or number 203 Arslanbey Buses. You may request help from the drivers to get off the bus as the Arslanbey İlköğretim Okulu bus stop or a bus stop near newly opened Congress and Cultural Center.

You can check times and bus stops from the mucipalities’ website: http://kocaeli.bel.tr/tr/main/hatlar/201/arslanbey-merkez-otobus-sefer-saatleri-ve-duraklari

http://kocaeli.bel.tr/tr/main/hatlar/203/arslanbey-izmit-ortak-hat–otobus-sefer-saatleri-ve-duraklari

Important Note: To get on the bus, you will need a “Kocaeli Kentkart” that you can buy from “Selling points (Satış ve Dolum Noktaları) in Halkevi. (There is one between the footbridge and Shell Gas station in Halkevi)

  1. If you arrives Kocaeli at the İzmit Bus Terminal, you should take “Akçaray”, reach to the last station Seka Park and then you should again get the buses 201 and 203.
