All taxis are equipped with meters, and drivers are required by law to use them within the city. 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. 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 the Moniot Rehavia cab company (02-6222444 or 02-6254444) from a mobile phone.
