Bus or Taxi, Jerusalem: 31 reviews and 24 photos

To get to Jerusalem from Cairo, take the 10:15 p.m. bus offered by the East Delta Company. You will arrive at the Taba bus station around 6 a.m. You will have to walk about 400 meters to the border. It will take between 45 minutes and an hour to get through customs. Once on the Israeli side, you will have to take a taxi to Eilat. It will cost 35 shekels, which is about $9. From Eilat, there are four direct buses to Jerusalem. The first one leaves at 7 a.m. and takes about four hours to get to Jerusalem. It passes through the Negev desert, then travels along the Dead Sea. It stops at a few of the Dead Sea resorts and Masada.

Other departure times are 10 a.m., 2:15 p.m. and 5 p.m. Buses in the reverse direction leave at the same time.
