Israel - Travel Advice

21 April 2016

On 18 April, 2016 an explosive device was detonated on a bus in south Jerusalem injuring passengers and bystanders. There have been numerous violent incidents on public transport and near public transport lines in Jerusalem. You should avoid using buses in Jerusalem. Only use the light rail between Mount Herzl and Ammunition Hill. Avoid travel on the light rail beyond Ammunition Hill; there have been regular violent incidents on that part of the route. Take extra care and be vigilant when using public transport in Tel Aviv, in particular at transport hubs, and when using buses in the greater Tel Aviv area. You may wish to consider using other forms of transport.
