Israel’s public bike rental services to extend outside Tel Aviv

The Tel Aviv municipality is working to promote alternative transport in the city in an effort to wean residents away from private vehicles. Haaretz has learned that the Tel Aviv Economic Development Authority is negotiating with Car2Go, an hourly car rental company that maintains vehicles on Tel Aviv parking lots, which can be accessed with a smart card. The authority hopes to be able to offer a joint discount card for Tel-Ofan and Car2Go. “It gives you the perfect transportation solution,” said Keren.”If you need to travel short distances, take the bicycle, and if you need to get out of town, take a car.”
