Jerusalem Travel Guide

Getting Around Jerusalem

Jerusalem has an extensive public bus service, and most drivers speak English, but most bus services stop over (from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday). Bus 99 is a hop-on hop-off service that visits all main tourist attractions in the city. The old city area is compact enough to explore on foot. Those who choose to drive in Jerusalem will find that local drivers tend to be unruly. Taxis are plentiful, identifiable by a yellow sign on the roof, and can be hailed in the street, ordered by telephone or hired outside hotels and main places of interest. Taxis are metered and charge more late at night and on Saturdays and public holidays. Passengers should make sure the taxi driver turns the meter on at the start of a journey. Shared taxis ( ) are another popular form of transport, travelling fixed routes and usually costing about the same as a bus. Passengers can get on and off when they need to, though drivers (and fellow passengers) can be impatient when it comes to delays.
