  • A four-legged explorer has taken Istanbul’s public transportation system by storm.
  • Boji, a commuting street dog, uses the city’s trains, trams, and ferries every day.
  • Photographer Chris McGrath captured a series of Boji’s adventures earlier this month.

Meet Boji: a beautiful boy who has learned how to navigate Istanbul’s vast public transportation network, sometimes traveling up to 30 kilometers a day using the city’s subway, ferries, trains, and trams.

Boji first started getting attention about two months ago, according to Reuters.

“We noticed a dog using our metros and trains and he knows where to go. He knows where to get out,” Aylin Erol, of Metro Istanbul, told the outlet. “It’s like he has a purpose.”

The dog prefers to travel in the middle part of the subway car, which is called “boji” in Turkish, which inspired transit officials to give the street pup his name.

Erol told Reuters that passengers frequently pose for photos with Boji, posting him across all social media platforms. Instagram and Twitter accounts bearing his name and photos have acquired more than 70,000 followers each.

Photographer Chris McGrath captured a series of Boji’s adventures earlier this month.

Most days, Boji passes through at least 29 metro stations and takes at least two ferry rides.

Data from his tracking device suggests that Boji prefers taking the city’s historic tram lines, though he frequents the subway regularly as well.

Since noticing Boji’s movements, Istanbul Municipality officials have begun tracking the dog’s commutes using a microchip and phone app.
