Tel Aviv To Provide Free Shuttle Bus Transport On Eurovision Weekend
The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality announced on Sunday that it will offer free transportation to and from the Eurovision Song Contest shows during the final weekend of the competition scheduled for May 17 and 18 (the finale).
Fifty free shuttle buses will run on those days from sundown Friday, the city said, and will travel along two main routes in the city, starting at the Carmelit Terminal near the Eurovision Village and ending at the Tel Aviv Expo.
A blue line will ride along the coast and a green line will ride through the city center.
The Tel Aviv-Jaffa municipality said it has been working hard to make sure public transport is accessible and convenient for tourists arriving for Eurovision.
As part of these efforts, the municipality said it teamed up with the Ministry of Transportation and transportation organizations in the city to reinforce existing buses and train lines, place info signed in English on the 500 main bus stops in the city, translate bus station names into English, and place new public transportation maps that will be distributed to tourists.
There will also be a 24/7 tourist information desk in the arrival hall at Ben-Gurion International Airport, and an information center at the Tel Aviv Savidor Central railway station.
The city said it will be cooperating with companies that provide alternative means of transportation like bicycles, e-scooters, and shared taxis, to make sure that they reinforce their activity during
