Israel Railways is a public corporation whose aim is to create an advanced transport system for goods and passengers within the country.
The Israel train system offers today a fair transportation coverage between the country’s major cities including : Tel – Aviv, Haiffa, Jerusalem & Beer-Sheva. Its northmost point is Nahariya and southern most point is Beer – Sheva.
Recently a line to Jerusalem was reopened, it is a slow ride to Jerusalem (about 90 minutes) but it enfolds spectacular views along the the way. The ride is usualy comfortable and trains are only over crowded on Sundays & Thursday when soldiers use it for free.
