Transportation in Tel Aviv

Transportation in Tel Aviv

Welcome to Israel! Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as you walk through centuries of history, explore vast terrains, and experience a melting pot of culture, unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

But before we set off to explore, we must know how to travel around the country! Follow along for these insightful tips on transportation in Israel, specifically Tel Aviv.

Tel Aviv, the largest metropolitan area in Israel, is a dynamic center of innovation, culture, and creativity. Beyond being a mere slogan, “Tel Aviv Nonstop City” perfectly captures its welcoming and upbeat essence. With its stunning beaches, diverse cultural offerings, exceptional cuisine, and lively nightlife, there’s always something captivating to experience in this city. Tel Aviv serves as a meeting point between the past and the present, seamlessly blending tradition, history, and the embrace of innovation, pluralism, and diversity.

The Tel Aviv Tourist Information Centers provide useful tips in English and Hebrew on points of interest, tours, attractions, and events around the city. The City of Tel Aviv works around the clock to ensure its tourist attractions, modes of transportation, and accommodations are accessible to all.


Traveling to Tel Aviv:

Tel Aviv is about a 20-35-minute drive (depending on traffic) from Ben Gurion International Airport, one of the largest travel hubs in the Middle East. The high-level security standards at Ben Gurion Airport are unmatched, and there are several means of transportation between Ben Gurion Airport and Tel Aviv.

1.      InterCity Train (Rakevet Israel) – Utilizing the express train is the greatest and most affordable way to travel to Tel Aviv. The train station is located at the lower level of Ben Gurion’s Terminal 3 and there are direct routes from the airport to Tel Aviv. The train from Ben Gurion to Tel Aviv generally leaves Platform 1, and you can take a train back to the airport from any train station in Tel Aviv. The train ride is about 11 minutes time (directly to Tel Aviv’s HaHagana Station) and costs 13 -18 NIS (about $5 USD). Please note that after midnight, the train stops only at Tel Aviv HaHagana and Tel Aviv Savidor Center. Due to Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath), the train does not operate from Friday morning to Saturday evening, so be sure to check train schedules here.

2.      Taxi – You’ll find both private and shared taxi services at Ben Gurion Airport located at Terminal 3 Arrivals Hall Exit. A private taxi to Tel Aviv costs approximately between 110- 185 NIS ($30-50 USD). Payments for taxi rides can be made either using cash or a local app called Gett (available for download on iOS or Android). There’s no need to book ahead for the trip, just be sure to have enough cash as not all taxis accept credit cards. Please note by law, taxis must have a meter running. The driver may try to negotiate a fixed price but that is generally illegal.

3.      Shared Taxi (Nesher Sherut) – A Nesher Sherut (shared taxi service) is a cheaper alternative to a private taxi and is popular way to travel around Israel. You’ll find Nesher vans outside the Arrivals Hall on Level G and they make stops all over the city. The service runs 24/7. Please note that travel from Ben Gurion Airport with this service does not require pre-booking. The shared taxi changes in rates; you’ll find the current rate clearly posted outside the terminal.

4.      Bus – There are airport shuttles to Tel Aviv from Ben Gurion Airport that run daily, at the top of the hour. It’s an easy way to reach your hotel and the service offers pick-ups and drop-offs to and from hotels in the city. The buses can be found at Terminal 3; the journey is approximately an hour (it could be less depending on traffic) and costs 16 NIS (about $5 USD). Bus fare is only accepted through a card called Rav Kav, which you can purchase here.


Traveling Around Tel Aviv:

Tel Aviv is a large and vibrant coastal city with a buzzing nightlife, world-class cuisine, and stunning beaches. It is very easy to get around Tel Aviv without a car (it is inadvisable to rent/ use a car), although car rentals are available throughout the city. Each neighborhood in the city is within walking distance, making the city extremely walkable. If you know your destination and have the proper app or website, you are set to go. Due to the compact size and scope of the city, Tel Aviv has an extensive and typically reliable bus service. It is easy to get around by bus, taxi, and car in Tel Aviv, and information is generally in Hebrew and English.

Another alternative way to travel around Tel Aviv is by publicly available motorized scooters or bikes, which you can find pretty much everywhere. Tel Aviv is mostly flat, and many areas provide bike lanes, so biking or riding scooters is a convenient means of getting around.

1.      Bus – The buses in Tel Aviv follow an efficient network of routes, with many stations scattered throughout the city. The standard bus fare for a single ride in Tel Aviv costs 5.90 NIS (about $1.60 USD). Bus companies Dan and Metropoline have a wheelchair-accessible ramp as well as a designated spot for wheelchairs.

Buses stop about an hour before sundown, and light rail a few hours before. Service resumes after sunset on Saturday night (buses start about an hour after Shabbat ends, and the light rail a few hours later).

2.      Share-Route Taxis – Yellow minivans, known as “Monit Sherut” in Hebrew, serve as shared taxis, providing transportation within and beyond Tel Aviv. These vehicles run throughout the week and typically follow the routes of public buses. However, unlike buses, they offer the convenience of stopping anywhere along their designated path, irrespective of bus stops. To hail one, simply wave your hand as you would when flagging down a regular cab.

3.      Taxi – Taxis in Tel Aviv are ubiquitous within the city limits. All drivers are required by law to turn on the meter. Taxi ordering apps such as Gett or Yango operate in the city and be sure to ask for a receipt at the end of the ride. It is also recommended that you download the ‘Waze’ app to ensure that your driver is taking the shortest route.
