Illit Transport Ltd. (Hebrew: עילית קווי תחבורה בע"מ‎) is an Israeli bus company serving Beitar Illit.

According to its official website, Illit was founded in 2005, winning its first tender to begin operations in 2006. It replaced 'Betar Tours', which had provided bus service to the city previously.[1][2]

The company owns 80 buses, running 5 intracity lines including 3 lines for school children, 11 lines to Jerusalem, one to Beit Shemesh and one to Bnei Brak.

The lines serve an almost exclusively Haredi population. As such, all Illit lines are Mehadrin, observing gender-separation.
