Since this month (May 2011) you can rent a bike in Tel Aviv, based on the famous Dutch “Witte Fietsen Plan” (White Bike Plan) (see our article before).
The Tel Aviv Municipality invested NIS 100 million ($25 million) in the so called: Tel O Fun rent a bike. More then 2.000 green bikes you will find at the so called ‘docking stations’ around Tel Aviv. The system works with credit cards (the Amsterdam bike plan in the 60s was free of charge). But, I have to say, it is not expensive in Tel Aviv: less then 30 minutes it is for free; from 31 minutes up to 90 minutes you have to pay just NIS 5 (about $ 1,50 / € 1,00 ) and for a FULL day, you pay only NIS14.- (about $ 4,00 / € 2,90)!!!
Tel Aviv: Kol HaKavod!
