There is a shuttle which will take you from the terminal to the taxi rank and city shuttle stations. Ask for the shuttle "Amal" to Haifa. The fare is 56NIS and the driver will take you to your destination (hotel, Technion Guest House, Technion physics department, etc).
ENTRY INTO TECHNION BY CAR
Give your host your car number, model and color and your estimated time of arrival and ask him/her to fax the security entry form to the main(west) or east gate. (map of Technion campus). If you are attending a conference, then the program you have printed from the Physics website constitutes an entry permit.
CAR - from the South
Take route #2 north. Take the first exit AFTER the Atlit interchange, and before the bridge. The exit is near the MATAM research park and has a sign to the Technion. You then make a right turn at the T junction (mandatory) and then a left at the next traffic light, following the sign to the Technion.
Stay on this road (called Fleiman and then Freud) for about 4Km, until you reach a T junction with a traffic light. Turn left and immediately right at the next light into Pica Road. Follow this road for about 1.5 Km, and bear right after the gas station. After about 1 Km take the left lane where the road goes under a tunnel. Bear right just before the next traffic light into Komoi Street and then i bear to the left at the following light. After 200 meters or so you'll be at the main Technion (west) gate (MAP - ).
Within the Technion drive straight, following the main ring road (which bears left just after Industrial Engineering). Turn left just after the third bus stop. The (new) main entrance to the Physics Department is 100 m along this road, on the right. Park where you can.
CAR - from the North and West
Follow the signs to the Technion through Nesher (MAP - Getting to Technion from North/West). If for any reason an entry form has not been faxed to the gate for you and you must therefore park outside the campus, then this gate is closer to Physics than the main gate. (Please see the campus map).
Once through the gate continue straight, turn left at the circle, and then first right. Continue along this road for about 100 m, and you will see the main (new) entrance to the Physics Department on the right. Park wherever you can find a space.
Take an intercity bus to the Haifa Hof Hacarmel bus station. Take bus no. 11 This bus brings you right into the Technion Campus. It runs frequently throughout the day. You can check the bus schedule at Egged Web site. The bus stop for Physics is the third after entering the Technion. Cross the road, turn right, walk down the hill and then turn left. The new main entrance to the Physics department is about 100 m along this road on the right.
We recommend that you take a taxi from the bus station to Technion, as the bus can take 3/4 hour in the morning peak hours, whereas a taxi is much quicker. There is also a sherut (shared taxi) service which will bring you into the Technion and is cheaper than a private taxi.
The taxi fare from Haifa Hof Hacarmel Bus Station to the Technion is approximately 30 NIS. Ask the driver to operate the meter, and ask him to take you to the main Technion gate and then use the car instructions as above to reach the Technion Physics Department.
Take a train to Haifa's Hof HaCarmel train station.(check train schedule)
Bus no. 11 from the Hof HaCarmel train station will bring you straight into Technion. There is also a shared taxi (sherut), also number 11, which goes to Technion (currently 5 NIS)
