How to get around within Tel Aviv

There are two popular ways to get around Tel Aviv: Bus and Taxi. Bus network in Tel Aviv runs from 5:00 a.m. until midnight, although some of the lines stop earlier. There are also night buses that run until 4:00 a.m. on Thursday and Saturday nights all year, Sunday to Wednesday nights in addition during summer time. Tickets can be purchased either at the driver or at the bus station. Bus drivers, like most Israelis, can understand some English. You can also explore the city via Sherut Taxis. They are mini buses that run about the same route as the popular bus route numbers 4 and 5, cost about the same as the bus, and also run in Shabbat. You pay after taking your seat and passing it to the person next to you, until it reaches the driver. Sherut Taxis run along Namir road to the CBS too. You can hail a taxi, or mo-NIT as locals call it, in the street, or call one with extra surcharge. Demand that the driver use the metre. In addition to normal taxis, there are 6-12 person van-sized taxis that supplement some bus routes. This is often faster, slightly cheaper, and operates seven days a week, which is more frequent than taking a bus.
