East Jerusalem in detail

Flights & getting there

  • Light Rail Has several convenient stops and is the easiest way to get here from West Jerusalem. Of course, it's also easy to reach via the Damascus Gate after visiting the Old City.
  • Bus East Jerusalem's bus routes are privately run; Rav-Kav cards, which can be used on most buses in the Greater Jerusalem area, are not valid for the blue-and-white East Jerusalem buses. The bus station is located on Sultan Suleiman St near Herod's Gate.
  • Taxi Many taxi drivers will refuse to bring you from west to east. Not a problem the other way around.
