=== West towards [[Istanbul]], [[Izmir]], [[Antalya]] {{E|80}} ===
In Option A: Kızılay (city center), there is the main dolmuş and city-bus station located just at ''Güvenpark''. Cross the pedestrian bridge over the huge avenue, and take the first street on your left called ''Meşrutiyet Caddesi'' which is full of bus stops. Find bus nr. '''123''' to '''Yaşamkent'''. The bus goes about 30 minutes and brings you to the starting point, where is a huge shoulder to stop plus a petrol station. Use a sign, you are just before the interjunction, where highway splits to Istanbul and other directions to the seaside.
[[FileOption B and C:SDC12163Take the Metro to Eryaman 1-hitchhiking2. B: Take bus 501-out2 to Susuz Köyu (7 stops). From there 200m walking to the ramp (Istanbul motorway and the alternative road via Bolu). Many ppl got direct rides to Istanbul from here according to the Hitchwiki map.  .C: Bus 521 feom Kizilay to Ankata Çevre Yolu or with bus 531/541 from Eryaman 1-2. The spot isn't perfect in my opinion. Cars are fast, officially you can't walk onto the motorway, many hitchhikers do so though and are luckier than at the beginning of-Ankarathe ramp.jpg|thumb|right|350px|Hitchhiking out of Ankara]]
=== Northeast towards [[Samsun]] {{E|88}} ===
Here you should actually just take a ''dolmuş'' going in direction of [[Kırıkkale]]; from there you can easily hitch-hike up north to [[Samsun]]. You can find such minibuses in Ulus in city centre, next to the Julian column. These minibuses will have a sign saying "Mamak", the name of the easternmost suburb of the city. They will take you as far as to the ring road surrounding the city for 2TL per person. Note that there are many dolmuş terminals around Ulus, so it's a good idea to ask which one has buses going to Mamak rather then just going to every single one.
To get to Cappadocia Region, find a hitch to Aksaray and look out for the signs for the road to Nevşehir (just when you enter the city, there's also a gas station where your driver can stop). From there you can easily stand on the side of the street, many trucks going that direction, too.
== Free Food ==
Food recycling organization ÇerÇöp Çorbacılar (Trash Soup) operates a free food case on Karanfil Street in the city center, Kizilay. You can take what food you need, and if you somehow find yourself hitching out of Ankara with more food than you want to carry, you can leave your extra food there as well.
ÇerÇöp Çorbacılar has a [ Facebook page] where you can ask questions in English.
