"Travel on Saturday" Israel Transportation Tip by Kentishlad

Israel Transportation: 136 reviews and 133 photos

Public transport of course closes until Saturday evening. The slight exception is for buses heading north from Eilat (eg to Jerusalem), which set off from around 3-4 pm to allow for them to reach their destinations. I stayed on a Kibutz just north of Eilat and found that buses at this time were very crowded, so get a ticket and get on early if you want a seat or have to get back at a particular time.
