Tel Aviv has joined great cities around the world – including Amsterdam, London, Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Taipei – in offering its residents and visitors a bike sharing program.

Green bikes for a green city

With 1,700 bikes and 170 bike stations spread around the city, anyone who wants to go for a ride, run a short errand or skip the search for a parking space can now rent a bike for NIS 17 (less than $5) a day or free for less than a half hour.

Tel Aviv’s flat roads and growing number of bike paths make biking attractive to anyone (over 15) who can push a pedal (and children can rent bikes from a bike shop). Tel Aviv natives and visitors alike love the eco-friendly transportation and over 7,000 people use the green bikes daily.
