A good place to start is with our Tel Aviv food guide. No matter where you travel in Israel, you are bound to stop in Tel Aviv for a couple of days.
One of the most important things to know about transit in Israel, is that buses no longer accept single fare payments. You must buy the bus card called a Rav-Kav card from the bus driver, for a fee of ₪10 per card. It can later be topped up with cash or credit at any train station or Super- Pharm drugstore. You can also purchase a Rav-Kav card from any train station if you happen to start your travels there.
You will need to use the card to board any bus, as well as the Jerusalem light rail.
You can still purchase single cash fares however, for the regular train, Israel Railways, or on the Monit Sherut (the minibus that operates 24/7).
