1Welcome to the forum Eoos.This is an odd one;there are several bus companies which go past the town and will be happy to dump you on the side of the highway(Metro Turizm,Truva Turizm for examples)but to get bus into the town itself you need to use Radar Turizm bus company.The otogar is well outside the town centre and there are regular local buses to take you in.
I'm not sure of the bus times for Radar but if you ask at Çanakkale bus station they'll tell you-they do run pretty regularly though.

2Thanks Sarikanarya! So I look out for the buscompany Radar in Canakkale (sorry for the previous typo, by the way) , that will take me to Bergama, and then take a dolmus inside the town?
I'm really looking forward to my trip (Istanbul - Canakkale - Bergama - Izmir - Ephese), but the busconnections cause stress, because I can't check them all in advance...

3Yes,the Radar company bus will take you to the otogar and from that you can take a local bus into the town centre.
From Bergama to Izmir Metro Turizm have a bus every 30 minutes for the 1½ hour journey and from there to Selçuk there is a bus every 40 minutes from the same otogar which takes 1 hour.

Please don't get stressed by this, eoos. Turkey has one of the best bus systems in the world. There are intercity, local and village buses running everywhere all the time. One thing you can guarantee is that you'll be able to get from A to B. So, don't worry about transport logistics, concentrate on what you want to do when you get to B.
Personally, I've never booked a bus in advance, secure in the knowledge that the helpful guys at the otogars will put me on the next bus to where I want to go.
It really is very easy, and that Çanakkale-Bergama-İzmir route is well serviced. As sari says, the Bergama otogar is a little out of the town on the main road, so you'll need to take some local transport in.
