Tel Aviv Transport


The easiest way to get around Tel Aviv is on foot or by taxi. Taxi mini-buses (sheruts) follow the same routes as the public buses, often with more frequency, and are slightly cheaper on weekdays. The bus system itself is extensive with a fixed fare in the city centre. Taxicabs are not of any particular make or model car, but do have rooftop signs and are plentiful. Fares are metered and more expensive at night. Ride sharing for a fee is illegal in Israel. Uber does operate in the country but only as a service for ordering taxis. Gett, Raxi and Yango provide the same type of service.
