Buses are a highly popular choice for public transportation in Israel. Cities like Tel Aviv, Beer Sheva, and Nazareth have their own private bus lines. Everywhere else, both local and intercity service is provided by Egged. The buses run on a regular schedule and the bus fare is reasonably priced.
Tickets can be purchased from the driver or at the central bus station. Most buses do not run on Jewish holidays or Shabbat.
