Although there is no date yet for the launch of the first line of the light rail, the Tel Aviv Municipality will charge visitors twice as much as Jerusalem for parking. The municipality's official announcement of almost doubling the price from NIS 6.7 to NIS 12 per hour will make Tel Aviv the most expensive city for parking in Israel , and even more expensive than some of the largest cities in the world.
It should be noted that Shabbat is not content with raising the price, but also extending the hours that must be paid: with the change coming into effect after Passover, the payment hours in the demand areas where the new rate will be charged, parking areas 1,2,4 in the city center, will be extended: on Fridays and holiday eves Obligation to pay until 17:00 and not until 13:00, and in the middle of the week where it is now mandatory to pay until 19:00, there will be an obligation to pay until 21:00. There will be no change in rates for those who hold a municipal parking ticket they received as city residents.
The increase in price became possible after the previous government canceled the uniform maximum national rate for parking in blue and white that was customary until then, 6.3 shekels per hour.
This is on the grounds that each local authority should set its own parking rates, in order to regulate between demand and supply, and to encourage visitors to the various cities to reach them by public transportation, thus creating less traffic congestion and air pollution.

Although Tel Aviv offers better public transportation than other cities, and even operates, together with other cities in the Gush Dan, a free bus service on weekends, while the regular bus service is closed, it still offers a limited alternative to the private car.
There is still no sequence of preferred routes for public transportation so that you don't get stuck in traffic jams, which are caused, among other things, by the extensive infrastructure works in the city, and there is not even an official date for the opening of the first line of the light rail, the red line, which is expected at the end of April or at the beginning of May.
According to data from the Pango app, only a few localities have raised their parking rates since the price limit was lifted.
Apart from Tel Aviv, which has so far charged NIS 6.7, Jerusalem and Kadima Zoran also raised their parking fees, which also charge NIS 6.7.
In Ramat Gan, Givatayim, Ramat Hasharon, Ra'anana, Ashkelon and Emek Hefer, by comparison, they continue to charge NIS 6.3 per hour.
But There are also local authorities that charge much less. Among the cheapest cities are:
NIS 2 per hour
Beit Dagan/Hazor HaGalilit/Yakneam/Migdal HaEmek/Nazareth/Kiryat Tivon: NIS
Dalit El Carmel: NIS 3.28
Ashdod/Beit Shemesh/Gedera: NIS
