Getting there

from the Ben Gurion Airport to Haifa

The address of your accommodation is: Haganim Street 44, Haifa (German Colony).

Most Israelis understand and speak English well and are willing to help.

By Train

The easiest and cheapest way to get to Haifa from the Ben-Gurion Airport is by train. For this, you have to take the train from the airport and head in the direction of 'Nahariya', but will get off at the station called 'Merkaz-Hashmona' in Haifa (about 1 1/2-hour ride, and will cost 40-50 shekels). From there, just ask for a taxi to your accommodation address. The taxi ride takes only a few minutes and should not cost more than 30-40 shekels. It's best to set a price before the ride. If we can, we will pick you up from the train station in Haifa. Please note that there are no trains on Fridays and Saturdays!

By Shuttle

The second option is to ask at the airport for the shuttles (also called "Sherut") to Haifa. It costs about 120 shekels (about $35). You may have to wait a bit longer for more passengers to fill the minibus. In the event that the driver wants to drive before the shuttle is full, passengers can agree to pay a little more. A sherut is also available on Fridays and Saturdays.The second option is to ask at the airport for the shuttles (also called "Sherut") to Haifa. It costs about 120 shekels (about $35).

By Bus

The third option is you can also take a green 'Egged' bus from the airport to the Haifa bus station 'Hof Ha Carmel' ('Egged' is Israel's largest bus company). From there you have to take a taxi to the volunteer apartment HaGanim Street 44 (or also to the Ebenezer Home at 41 Meir Street). The buses will not run from Friday afternoon until Saturday night.

By Taxi

A normal taxi (generally called "special") is the last option, but is quite expensive (a few hundred shekels). If you choose this option, it is important to agree about the price and the currency before departure. Please also inform the driver in advance that you need a receipt, which you will then only receive in Haifa. If you suspect that you have been charged more than the normal fare, note the number of the taxi. Above all, it is important that you request a receipt and keep it.
