Located on the shore, south of Tel Aviv Yafo, and bordering Rishon Le’Zion and Holon, Bat Yam is the home of 125,000 residents. It was established in 1926 and has been classified as a town since 1958. Bat Yam has unique beaches, lined with a boardwalk, hotels and attractions.
Bat Yam is linked to its neighbors by several traffic axes – road 20 (Ayalon Freeway) traverses its eastern border, connecting it to the rest of the country; Ha’Azmaut Boulevard connects to Jerusalem Boulevard in Jaffa; and two stations of the Israel Rail serve the town and connect it to Tel Aviv and the south and north of the country.
The Red Line of the Light Rail connects Bat Yam to Tel Aviv and further to Ramat Gan, Bnei Brak and Petah Tikvah.
