How to get from the Israel airport to the city?

Ben Gurion is the largest airport in Israel, where flights from Europe, the USA, and other continents arrive at on a daily basis. It has two main terminals:

  1. Terminal 3, for international flights.
  2. Terminal 1, which is smaller and designed for domestic and low-cost foreign flights.

The airport is located about 20 km southeast of Tel Aviv city center and about 50 km from Jerusalem. Ben Gurion is connected to these cities by a high-speed highway.

Available transport

It is easy to get to the city from the airport. There are many options available – train, taxi, bus, sheruts (a bus taxi hybrid). Each option has its advantages and disadvantages. It all depends on the travelers’ preferences, destination, and budget. Let’s consider each of the available options:

  1. Train. The fastest way to get to the city. However, it’s inconvenient, especially if you have a lot of luggage. It runs every 30 minutes in the daytime from 5:35 a.m. to 8:35 p.m. and every hour at night.
  2. Sherut. This shared taxi runs to most major cities. Prices vary depending on the destination.
  3. Shuttle bus. The cheapest option. It departs hourly, every day (except Saturday) from the airport. Tickets can be purchased online or on the day of travel.
  4. Taxi. The most expensive mode of transport. A car can be found right outside the Arrivals Hall, and tariffs vary depending on the time of day.

Despite the benefits, the main and most important drawback is that during Shabbat (from Friday sunset to Saturday sunset) and certain other Jewish holidays, public transport in Israel doesn't run. Therefore, to avoid difficulties, the best option is a private transfer from the airport.
