Air

The West Bank has no functioning airport.

Bicycle

Palestinian roads are not designed for cycling, and it is relatively rare to see bicycles in the West Bank. But a growing number of tour groups cater to cyclists, including Bike Palestine (www.bikepalestine.com).

Boat

The Gaza Strip is on the Mediterranean but is inaccessible to travellers. The West Bank cannot be entered by boat.

Bus

In East Jerusalem and the West Bank, a number of small, Arab-run bus companies provide public transport. Unlike their counterparts in Israel, they operate right through the weekend.

Car & Motorcycle

In the West Bank, the highways that link Israeli settlements are usually modern and quick, but on other roads traffic is often held up by donkey carts, traffic jams and army checkpoints.

Shared Taxi

Shared taxis (called servees) are plentiful and are often found near main town squares.

Train

The West Bank has no train infrastructure.
