It replaced 'Betar Tours', which had provided bus service to the city previously.[1][2] In 2011, Illit was merged into Kavim but Illit is still used as a brand for the Beitar Illit routes.

The company owned 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.
