Participants arriving via public transportation from outside Haifa:
We recommend taking the train to “Haifa Hof HaKarmel (Razi’el)” train station and then either a taxi or a bus to Technion. See train+bus/taxi option below.
Participants arriving by car:
Just say that you are coming for the conference at the gate to the Technion. You may park anywhere on campus.
Train + bus/taxi:
Take a train in direction of “Nahariya” and get off at Haifa Hof HaKarmel (Razi-el) station (about 90 minutes, <50NIS). Trains run 24 hours but not during the Israeli Shabbat weekend (from Friday afternoon to Saturday night).
To get from the station to your accommodation (hotel or guesthouse) you can either cross via the underground pass to the Merkazit Khof Ha-Karmel CBS bus terminal and get a bus from there (about 30-60 minutes <10NIS) or take a taxi (about 20 minutes, 70 NIS). Taxis await outside the station during most of the day. At night, availability may be limited and you may need to call the taxi service at +972 (0)4 8555022 or +972 (0)4 8550055.
A shuttle service run by “Amal Taxi Co.”, provides door-to-door transportation from the airport to your hotel or guesthouse in Haifa (about 90-120 minutes, 120NIS). This service is available 24/7 (including the Israeli Shabbat weekend), but you might have to wait for a long time until the driver has gathered enough people.
Provide the driver with the name and address of the hotel or guesthouse. If the driver doesn’t know where the guesthouse is, ask him/her to take you to the Technion first and seek further instructions at the main gate. Consult the airport ground transportation webpage under “Amal Service Taxis to Haifa and North of Israel” for the location of the shuttle and additional information.
Taxis to Haifa are available 24/7 via an official dispatcher just outside the arrival hall (about 90 minutes, 600 NIS). Do not use an unauthorized taxi and ask the driver to turn on the meter. Consult the airport ground transportation webpage for the location of taxis and additional information.
If you are staying in the on-campus guesthouse, just let the guards know that you are staying there for the school. This should be enough to give you permission to enter.
A designated bus from the Technion to the airport, passing through the Haifa Hof HaKarmel (Razi’el)” train station, will be provided. The bus will leave right after the last talk on Friday. Further details will be provided during the school.
