Transportation and School Bus Service

IICS is proud to offer school transportation services from Gürsel, a locally owned transportation company that has been in service since 1993.

Students come to school either by school bus or by car (parent or driver). In recent years, over 80% of our students have used the bus services. School buses serve many parts of Istanbul. For transportation to and from the Marmara Campus, IICS coordinates the services of 17, 27, and 47 passenger buses. All buses have seat belts, wi-fi, cameras (offline), GPS system, and supervisors.

The school buses (and their drivers) are privately contracted by parents. IICS coordinates and supervises the buses for the convenience of our families, and IICS bears no liability. Upon admission or re-enrollment, parents may sign up for bus services through the transportation coordinator in the school office. Parents are billed by the bus company (in TL) for this service.

Our HR Director Pinar Demirkan, supervises the school’s transport company Gürsel. Transportation needs for all school trips for athletics, activities, community & service, and field trips here and abroad are organized by Gürsel.

If you are not yet an IICS parent, please contact our Admissions Director, Ms. Zeliha Ozturk, about general transport inquiries.

If you are a current IICS parent and have any questions about transportation, please contact Gürsel Transport Coordinator, Mr. Alparslan Bahadir if you have inquiries about student bus services.

If you would like to track your child’s bus, Gürsel uses MOBINAV for this service. If you have not yet received your user name and password, please email Alparslan Bahadir for your login credentials.
