It is part of the public transportation, great efforts by the municipality.
Kids had a nice experience for the first time.

I heard about this cable car through the Istanbul Tourist Pass. One of the items included in the pass was the Hop On Hop Off bus and one of the bus' stops was the cable car.

Luckily, I had purchased a metro card to use during my trip and was able to pay for admission to the cable car using the funds I had loaded on my Istanbulcard.

When you travel up the hill, you will be surrounded my a very large cemetery built on the side of the hill. I think I found the cemetery just as interesting as the view. It is truly amazing how it is laid out.

The view from the top is amazing. You are looking down the Golden Horn to the Bosphorus. On a clear day, you can see the scope of Istanbul.

the tip up the hill is very short but you can wander around while your up there. Overall, this is a nice little side trip which will take 1 hour from getting on at the bottom of the hill to getting off back at the bottom

This is also called Teleferik and it is public transportation. It is great to use it above Maçka Parkı.

So good comfortable cable ride, you have to pay with the kart card , not expensive but a very short ride. No instructions in English on the board or machine on how it works, so only after trial and error. No staff around also only till you get on the cable. Went up and back down again in 10 mins.
Was cold so maybe on a good sunny day views would be better.
But not sure what you are expected to see at the other end... touristy shops cafe and cemetery.

Travels a very short distance and just an excuse to make money. Tour groups push people through so the infrastructure can’t deal with the numbers. You can get far better views from many rooftop bars
