Following the lead of other large metropolises around the world, Tel Aviv has introduced a "City Tour" bus that will take visitors on a two-hour ride around the city, reports http://www.local.co.il. The tour will cost NIS 10 (NIS 8 for youth and pensioners) during its introductory period until the end of February, instead of the normal price of NIS 45. According to the report, the Dan bus company and the municipality inaugurated the tour bus some six months ago, but it has only now begun operating. The bus begins and ends the tour at the Reading terminal in the north of the city, and stops at some 30 sites along the way, including the Tel Aviv Port, the promenade (Tayelet), Jaffa, Neveh Tzedek, Nahlat Binyamin, Sderot Rothschild, Rehov Dizengoff, the Rabin memorial, the Tel Aviv Museum, the Azrieli Center, Kikar Hamedina, and the Tel Aviv University. Tours run between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., and passengers can hear information about the sites in eight languages through earphones.
