Egged provides bus service from Jerusalem to Efrat and back. In some cases, you can also use Egged buses to get to and from other yishuvim in the area.

Bus LinesEdit

Efrat is served by a number of bus lines.

167 EfratEdit

167 is the main bus line to and from Efrat. All 167 buses travel through all the Efrat neighborhoods. Some 167 buses from Jerusalem take a detour to Har Gilo on the way to Efrat if requested by passengers (currently the 19:10 bus). Most 167 buses originate and terminate in Efrat, but some start and terminate in Migdal Oz.

161 & 164 Western Gush EtzionEdit

161 & 164 serve the yishuvim of Neve Daniel, Elazar, Migdal Oz, Alon Shvut, Rosh Tzurim, Bat Ayin and Kfar Etzion. The origin/terminus of 161 is Kfar Etzion, while the origin/terminus of 164 is Bat Ayin. Each bus during the day serves a different collection of yishuvim.

Some 161/164 buses that leave Jerusalem after 8pm travel through all the neighborhoods of Efrat on their way to the other yishuvim, and provide the main nightime service from Jerusalem to Efrat.

Some 161/164 buses during the day make stops near the Southern entrance to Efrat on their way to and from Jerusalem.

160 and 165 Kiryat Arba & Eastern Gush EtzionEdit

Some buses of the 160 (the Kiryat Arba bus) and 165 (Eastern Gush Etzion) lines make stops near the Southern gate of Efrat to and from Jerusalem.

Routes Within EfratEdit


There are three routes Egged buses take inside Efrat:

  • 167 through all the Efrat neighborhoods
  • 161/164 at night from Jerusalem through all Efrat neighborhoods
  • Buses that enter the Southern gate of Efrat on their way to and from Jerusalem. (161, 164, 165, 166)
??? Anyone have info on the routes/stops inside Efrat for these nighttime buses going to Jerusalem? Please fill it in if you do.


All 167 buses in both directions travel through all the Efrat neighborhoods.
