We took the train from Selçuk to Izmir. The train was modern, air conditioned and comfortable and a ticket costs 5.5 Lira each way. The journey time is on average around 90 minutes so although significantly cheaper than the bus takes a little longer. The advantage of the train is that the bus terminates at Izmir Otogar which is some distance from the city centre and requires getting another bus to the city centre, whilst the train terminates at Basmane which is right in the heart of Izmir. The other potential benefit of the train is that about 15 minutes from Basmane it stops at Adnan Menderes Airport.

It is not the prettiest train journey, but for accessing central Izmir it ticks all the right boxes.
