Istanbul (IST) to Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW)

What is the best way to travel between Istanbul's (IST) airport and the Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW). We will arrive at IST, but must make a connection at SAW to Kayseri. We will have plenty of time, but will be tired upon arrival. I have seen raves (Turkey Travel Planner) and pans about the Efendi shuttle service. On the surface it seems to be the best choice. Comments?

Hi Jerry, I don't think you'll get many responses because most folks don't fly out of Sabiha Gokcen. I think the only thing you should be careful about is making sure you have enough time given traffic - Sabiha Gokcen is on the Asian side (I don't know the distance between Sabiha Gokcen and IST). You'll have to cross the Bosphorus via a bridge to get there. I'm fairly sure that any shuttle service will be cheaper than a taxi, so just go with it.
