As part of the final stages of electrifying the railway line passing through the Sharon ring stations and prior to its operation in the coming weeks, the overhead contact network at these stations will be connected to the railway electricity network, an operation that requires the disconnection of electricity at the Tel Aviv stations.
Due to this, from Wednesday, October 27. 2021 until Saturday evening, November 6, 2021, changes in train traffic on the Hertsliya – Jerusalem - Yitzhak Navon line will apply daily (including Saturday evening) only between 21:00 - 24:00 (approximately).
- Trains on this line will commence and terminate their trips at the Tel Aviv - HaHagana station and will not stop at the Tel Aviv - HaShalom, Tel Aviv - Savidor Center, Tel Aviv - University and Hertsliya stations.
- In addition to the possibility of changing trains at the Tel Aviv - HaHagana station in order to continue travelling to other destinations, we will operate, on the days that work is being carried out, a shuttle transport service between the Hertsliya, Tel Aviv - University, Tel Aviv - Savidor Center and Tel Aviv - HaHagana stations, in both directions.
Following are details of the shuttle service
October 27, 2021 - November 4, 2021 (Not including Friday, 29.10.21)
From the Tel Aviv - HaHagana Station to the Hertsliya Station, (stop on the way at the Tel Aviv - Savidor Center and Tel Aviv - University stations): 22:15, 22:45, 23:15, 23:45, 00:15
From the Hertsliya station to the Tel Aviv - HaHagana station, (stop on the way at the Tel Aviv - University and Tel Aviv - Savidor Center stations): 21:00, 22:00, 23:00
The train traffic on the line will revert to normal on Sunday, November 7, 2021, upon the resumption of service.

Compensation during the closure

If you have purchased a 30-day flexible Rav Kav or 7-day flexible Rav Kav, and you cannot travel because of a temporary closure of a track section, which was not announced on the Israel Railways website and in the stations seven days from the day the tickets were purchased, you be eligible for an extension of the use period of the ticket, depending on the type of ticket in your possession.
Pursuant to Ministry of Transport instructions:
- The holders of student period tickets of any kind are not eligible for compensation for the closing of a track section.
- If notification of the closing of a track section is announced on the website and at the stations 14 days before the start of the closure, holders of 7-day flexible Rav Kav will not be eligible for an extension.
