Tel-Aviv has Tel-O-Fun, anetwork of bicycle rental locations through the city.
When you take a subscription the rates are scheap:
Daily subscription Su-Fr: 14 ILS
Daily subscription - Saturdays and Public holidays: 20 ILS
Weekly subscription: 60 ILS
In recent years Tel-Aviv has become much more bicycle-friendly. Bicycle lanes have been constructed in many parts of the city: In the "Boulevard Axis" of Rothschild Blvd, Ben-Zion Blvd, Chen Blvd and Ben Gurion Blvd; all along the seashore promenade, connecting Jaffa in the south with all the beaches and major seaside hotels, to the old harbor in the north, and beyond. The extensive Yarkon Park ("Ganei Yehoshua") is ideal for bicycle riders.
In 2011 the Tel Aviv municipality took the initiative and put bicycles for rent in many bike stands all over the city: 75 stations to a start, to be doubled by the end of the year; 750 bukes altogether, to be increased to 1500 by the end of the year.
The bicycles are lightweight, and, of course, are colored green. You can get a subscription for one day (NIS 14), one week (NIS 60), one month or a whole year.
Every time you take a bicycle for a ride, you have to return it within 30 min to any of the bike stands in the city. If you are late by 1-30 min there is an extra charge of NIS 5, but if you return the bike later than that the fines is higher.
This is a cheap, convenient, healthy and "green" way to travel around Tel-Aviv!
You can check the map of bike stands at the website below.
If you fly To Israel get to the airport early because the security check is more extensive than any you've had before and takes a long time. It's nothing to worry about, mostly questions about what you're going to be doing in Israel, if you have relatives and other seemingly innocuous inquiries that somehow help the security officials spot potential problems.
To leave the country is a little different than yours because it takes more long to get out comparing to get In.Thats why please keep all the official papers in order to prove where you ve been in Israel ( Hotel ,restaurant invoices ,tickets etc etc )
Usually, customs officials will wave you right through, but don't be surprised if you are asked to open up your bags. Checks are random and are very common. Don't be offended or resist and you'll be on your way very soon.Last word . Dont make jokes to the officials!!!!
the 4 and 5 mini cabs will take you near to almost anywhere you need to go in tel aviv. they run very regularly - the 4 i think maybe even all night, but definately into the wee hours, they both start at the central bus station - the four going all the way down allenby, down ben yehuda all the way north and then stops at reading (from which you can get cabs if you need to go more north)
the five goes on rothchild, dizengoff till nordau and then continues down till Weizman - if you look at the map you'll see that all of central tel aviv is no more than a 15 minute walk from either of these bus routes - so it makes it very convenient
