After founding the settlement, Shavei Zion needed access to the regional transport system. A road to Shavei Zion was built with sand from the beach, a logistics system had to be set up, and a bus line was opened. In Shavei Zion itself, transportation often consisted of donkey carts, horses, and tractors. And the sea played an important role in supporting the settlement during the War of Independence.
