By Taxi

In many places around the city, you can easily hail a taxi. There are taxi stations at several locations, generally near hotels. You can also order a taxi by telephone (dial 144, telephone information, to ask for the phone number of a taxi company).

All taxis are equipped with meters, and drivers are required by law to use them. The driver may offer a fixed sum rather than the meter fare – accept at your own risk!

You may request a receipt at the end of the journey. There are extra charges for nighttime, Sabbath and holidays, extra passengers, and telephone orders. Tipping is not customary. The driver's name and license number is posted in the car. The number is also posted in large print on the outside of the car. 

From the museum, please ask the volunteers at the information desk to call you a taxi, or call 1-700-500-500 or *6226 from a mobile phone.

For further information

The Jerusalem Tourist Information Center, tel. 02-627-1422, or the Christian Information Center, tel. 02- 627-2692, can provide more information. Both are located at the Jaffa Gate.
