METROPOLITAN TRANSPORTATION IN ISRAEL

Tel Aviv is an example of a medium-sized metropolis, whose road network lags far behind its motorization. The pressure of neighboring cities on the core is such that the daily life of central city inhabitants has been disrupted severely. Efforts to solve these problems have so far concentrated on: a) Limitations on private vehicle movement. b) Exclusive bus lanes and contra-flow lanes for transit. c) Massive development of arterial roads and by-passes around the center. It is imperative to allow the activity of commuters in Tel Aviv, but only to the extent that their transportation characteristics are not detrimental to the city life. A much improved public transportation service for commuters is an example in this direction.
