Talk:Tel Aviv

The La Guardia on-ramp is not very safe but twice I had a good experience here already, for going to Eilat and Jerusalem. Ben Gurion can be a very useful point in between. And I don't like it to see my info being removed all the time. guaka 18:46, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Well I do take care to remove incorrect info, that's a part of what this wiki is all about. For example, Jerusalem is not on the way to Eilat - So I removed that reference. Also going to Ben Gurion airport could really make a mess out of the journey - I'm glad you had a good luck there once, but generally it's hard to get a ride and the security staff can be annoying. I would not recommend anyone to stop there on their way to Jerusalem or vice-versa. Modi'in is not on the route between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, but rather 443 is an aperthid road going through the Palestinian territories, entering Jerusalem through the northern suburbs. It's difficult to get a ride to Jerusalem center from this road. At any rate, no info is better then wrong one. Liorvol 11 December 2008 (UTC)

I've hitched several times on 443, and also from Modi'in, and twice from Ben Gurion, without any problems. Waiting times were not significant and definitely shorter than Tel Aviv waiting times.
But of course, both your and my point of view should be mentioned in the article. guaka 12:04, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Where do hh in the airport? Next to the terminal there are annoying taxis, and you miss all the people that go take the car from the parking lot (the majority). It's easy to get a ride on 443, but it does not lead to Central Jerusalem like road number 1 does. Liorvol
