Chosen People Shuttle
Chosen People Ministries will provide shuttles to and from Ben Gurion Airport for those who arrive in Israel on July 5th, 2018, and leave Israel on July 13th, 2018. Shuttle times from the airport to the hotel are based on the flight information received for the entire group. Some individuals may have to wait a bit longer at the airport until other individuals arrive, but for the most part, everyone arriving on the July 5th, 2018 and departing on the July 13th, 2018 will be receiving a shuttle.
If there are no shuttles available when you arrive at Ben Gurion Aiport, we recommended that you take a “Nesher.” Nesher is a shuttle service that is available from the airport to the Dan Jerusalem Hotel where you will be staying. The shuttle takes you directly from the airport to the hotel. After landing in Israel and pickup up your bags, walk directly to an information booth and ask where to pick up a Nesher shuttle to Jerusalem. Once on the shuttle, tell the driver you will be going to the Dan Jerusalem Hotel. The shuttle should cost you no more than 70 shekels (20 dollars) a person. You can also take the Nesher shuttle back to the airport from the hotel. Schedule the trip 24 hours in advance with a front-desk clerk at the hotel.
Traveling on your own in Jerusalem
One of the easiest ways to get around the city from the Hotel is by taking a taxi. To order a taxi, speak with a front desk clerk at the hotel and they will schedule it for you. When returning to the hotel, you can either call a taxi using the same service provided by the hotel, or you can “catch” a taxi in the city.
A more affordable option for travel in Jerusalem is to take the light rail. To reach the city center from the hotel, you board at the Ammunition Hill station (conveniently located outside the hotel) and ride the light rail 5 stops to the Jaffa – Center station. When coming back, you simply reverse it.
