Jerusalem is laced with a very good network of city bus routes (5.50NIS per ride). If you need to transfer ask for a ticket Ma’avar (6.40NIS). A pass for 10 rides costs 44NIS while a one-month pass is 216NIS. Pick up a colour-coded route map (in Hebrew) from the Jaffa Gate tourist office.
Plan on spending 20NIS to 25NIS for trips anywhere within the central area of town. Always ask to use the meter. To order a taxi, call Hapalmach taxi (679 2333).
The hills of Jerusalem make biking a little tough going, but if you need a bike try Rochvim Bikes (623 2598; 88 Agrippas St) which rents bikes for 35NIS per day. The store, on the corner of Mani St, is a unique collaboration between local Palestinian and Jewish biking enthusiasts.
