The Transportation Minister of Israel (currently styled as the Minister of Transportation and Road Safety (Hebrew: שר התחבורה והבטיחות בדרכים‎, Sar HaTakhbura veHaBetikhut BeDerekhim)) is the government minister at the head of the Transportation Ministry in Israel. A relatively minor post in the Israeli cabinet, it is often given to smaller parties in the governing coalitions. Nevertheless, there has been a Transportation Minister in every Israeli government to date. Yisrael Katz of Likud is the incumbent.

Three Prime Ministers (David Ben-Gurion, Menachem Begin and Ariel Sharon) have held the Transportation portfolio whilst in office, though only for a short time, whilst three Transportation Ministers (Ezer Weizman, Moshe Katsav and Shimon Peres) have gone on to become President.

There is also occasionally a Deputy Minister of Transportation.
