Taking a sherut in Tel Aviv is a quick and efficient way to get around, but maybe a bit intimidating the first time 😆
The Sherut (monit Sherut in Hebrew) works like shared taxis (10 to 12 people max).
They run along the main streets of Tel Aviv.
How to use a Sherut ?
Just raise your hand to stop it (like a taxi).
Unlike a bus, you have to sit back then pay.
To do this, simply tap on the shoulder of the people in front of you who will pass the money to the driver.
To get out of Sherut ?
Just ask the driver to drop you where you want along his way.
Since December 8, 2016, their price has dropped and is 5.90 nis.
Note that sheruts work on Shabbat (Friday night and Saturday) at a higher rate: 8 nis.
