There are numerous bus lines to Haifa from all over Israel. Information about the bus lines in English can be reached from these websites:
Train transportation to the city of Haifa is relatively easy coming from the south of Israel or North (cities of Nahariya, Acco and Haifa’s northern suburbs have train stations). There are two train stations that one can get off of to reach Gordon College. Coming from the south of Israel, the Hof HaCarmel station is the closest to Gordon College. From there the bus number 115 goes to our college and leaves every 15 minutes from this train station. If you are travelling from the north of Israel, the Merkaz Hashmona station is the closet to Gordon College. Bus number 58 from this station also stops at Gordon College (runs once an hour). From the Bat Galim train station (between Hof HaCarmel and Merkaz Hashmona stations), one can take a 15 minute walk to the cable car by the beach, which in 3 minutes, brings you to a five minute walk to Gordon College (details below).
HAIFA CABLE CAR: Bat Galim—Stella Maris
One of the services available for our students is using Haifa’s cable car. One of the cable car's stations is located in Stella Maris, which is five minutes walk from the college. The other station is situated in Bat Galim, by the sea shore (and a 15 minute walk from the train station at Bat Galim). It runs from around 8am in the morning until 8pm at night during the days of study each semester. Every student and staff member of Gordon College is entitled to use the cable car free of charge.
