Bus terminal and child discounts

We will be travelling overnight from Istanbul to Selcuk with a 4 and 7 year old.

Which bus terminal does the Uludağ bus from Istanbul to Izmir/Selcuk leave from? Is it the mail Otogar at Bayrampasa or a different location?

Also I understand that some bus companies (Ulusoy) gives some discount for children. However this cannot be booked online. Do all the bus companies give this discount? What is the discount? Is it that a seat itself is discounted i.e. child gets a seat but pays less, or is it that they do not get a seat and pay less (or nothing)?

We will probably buy a ticket to be sure that the children have seats. But we do not want to pay full price if we can avoid it. If we do not buy it online in advance, do we have to go to the otogar to buy tickets in person same day (we fly into Istanbul same day).

422SC, the bus companies that serve Istanbul - Bursa route are mainly Metro, Kamil Koc, and Nilufer companies. It is best to buy the tickets when you go to main mus terminal (Otogar at Bayrampasa). Each company has their own rules and you have to ask them about the rules. There is no separate Otogar for Uludag. You will just go to Bursa-Otogar and take a taxi or dolmush (shared van) from Bursa-Otogar to Uludag. "www.metroturizm.com.tr/OnlineBilet.aspx…".
