Unlike many American cities, taxis are everywhere in Tel Aviv. Stick your hand out and one will pull over shortly. However, in the rare case that they are nowhere to be found, get to a major hotel. They have either a taxi line or can call one for you. When riding in the taxi you can demand that he run the meter, but many drivers will agree on a fee to your destination. However, unless someone trustworthy has told you how much said destination should be, ask for the meter. If you choose to use the meter, ask for a receipt(ka-ba-lah). Taxi drivers will ask more on Shabbat and after 9pm. Taxis are a safe mode of transportation used by all citizens.
