unfortunately because it is the holidays there is no regular transportation (no trains or buses...) so you can either use a taxi or there are some private shuttles to Tel Aviv - and there you can take another taxi to your exact location...
I think that it will be easier and not much difference in price - just to take a taxi.
I hope this answer your question.

Hi Karolina and welcome to our beautiful Tel Aviv.
The only transportation available during Jewish, religious Holidays (such as Rosh Ha'Shana) and weekends -is taxi.
However: do not accept a payment that's higher than 150NIS (you may be asked to pay an extra amount for luggage, but I suggest you negotiate it).
You may find that some taxi drivers - like those I met myself in Europe - are charging tourists with extra prices if the latter are not familiar with the rates.
Enjoy Israel!
Sharon.

Hi Karolina,
Unfortunately there is no public transportation on holidays and Saturdays. You will have to take a cab into town. The price should be some were around ILS 160-170.

There will be lots of taxis there. Best thing would be to download the Gett app and order a cab either before you take off or right after you land. Be aware that there's a fixed price from the airport to Tel Aviv (something like 140 ILS, approx. 30 euro), so don't let anybody fool you!

Well, unfortunately Israel is a theocracy, so there is NO public transportation whatsoever. As far as I know, the only option is to take a taxi - the taxi-drivers at the aiport are very rude, but I don't see any other option... :-( Unless you know someone in Tel-Aviv with a car?
