Buses to Eilat

While I do not usually post on this forum, while looking for something on the Egged website I discovered that there are direct buses to Eilat, during the summer from many cities. These include

Ashkelon, Ashdod, Rison le-Tsiyon, Netanya Haifa and others. For those interested

Good to know! I will be making my first trip without a rental car in November, and will be taking the bus from Eilat to Jerusalem. I know that route always existed, but it's good to know for other travelers that direct options exist to Eilat.

Douglas--it won't help you. This is during the summer only. ( when loads of Israelis go to Eilat--even though it is very very hot!)

Yes, these buses run only in July and August, and have done for many years. Although there is a daily bus (may be more than once a day) from Haifa to Eilat throughout the year.
