Tel Aviv HaHagana Railway Station is a large train station located in the southern part of Tel Aviv. It opened in June of 2002, near the intersection between Highway 1 and the Ayalon Highway. The city of Tel Aviv acts as a central hub for most of the lines on the railroad network belonging to Israel Railways, the state-owned company in charge of all train transportation in Israel. Thus, trains from six of Israel Railways' eight railway lines stop at the HaHagana Railway Station, just as they do at two other Tel Aviv train stations.
Public restrooms, dining, pay telephones, automatic ticket vendors, and taxis are all available at this station. Travelers in Israel who are renting a car should be advised that there is no parking. Tourists without a car, however, have extra reason to love the HaHagana Railway Station: it's right next to the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station, the biggest bus terminal in Tel Aviv. The HaHagana Railway Station itself is a big, efficient, if rather impersonal structure of glass and concrete.
