Public Transportation for Dogs (Cats too)

Be it taxis,buses, or trains, do not leave the furr-ball behind!

Israel is extremely pet friendly.

Here are the things to know:

  • Dogs are allowed in taxis, buses, and trains as long as they have a muzzle on (it does not have to cover the nose, but should wrap fully around their mouth and behind their head).
  • Do expect to pay for their seat (or sometimes a little more), but don’t fret, no crazy fees.
  • Really, that is all you need to know! Of course, be respectful of the people around you.

Other good things to know

  • Tel Aviv is packed with dog parks. There is at least one in every neighborhood.
  • Feel free to take your dog off the leash in the Yarkon Park, as long as they are people and dog friendly. This park acts as a wonderful meeting and playing center, with multiple dog parks and wonderful walking/running/biking paths.
  • There are plenty of dog friendly beaches, just ask around and you are sure to find the closest one to you.
  • Most cafes (99.9%) will let you sit outside with your pooch (and most restaurants too). Inside can be a little tricker, but sometimes is still possible.
