Travel:

BUS

Inner-city bus Tel Aviv (Dan Buses) - http://www.dan.co.il/english/

Inter-city bus (Egged) Frequent but may need to pre-book especially for a Sunday or Thursday trip http://www.egged.co.il/eng/

SHERUT

The best way to get around Tel Aviv is with the sherut, which looks like a yellow mini bus. They go up and down around the main streets, and run 24/7. They are only 6 NIS in the day.
