There was a regular shuttle service when I was there a few years ago. Price was reasonable as well.

It appears to have been stop'd by the municipality though but have a look here for a replacement

if u wish to use public lines (not late night period),

1- from Esenler bus terminal; take a tram to Eminonu via Aksaray and from Eminonu to kadikoy by public ferry and from Kadikoy to Sabiha Gokcen nr E-10 public bus or get havatas bus from Kadikoy to Sabiha Gokcen Airport.

2- Or from Esenler; public bus, to Taksim (nr 85-T and every 45 minutes departures, and one token means 3 Turkish Liras) and from Taksim to Sabiha Gokcen via havatas buses (12 Turkish Liras)
Construction is going on in Taksim area nowadays, so below map shows new departure area of havatas.

3- fastest way
from bus terminal to Aksaray
from Aksaray to Taksim (so many buses goes there from Aksaray or dolmus)
from Taksim to Sabiha Gokcen by havatas

4- Better way; call one of your friend to bus terminal and he/she can drive directly to Airport:))

Have to agree with Max, if you're coming from a long haul provincial bus, it normally stops at several terminal before reaching the main buyuk otogar, which includes the asian side. I always tell the friendly steward on the bus whered i'd wish to go in Istanbul so he could put it on his log and take me to the nearest stop or coordinate with the free minibus/van service to take me to the nearest spot.
