Israel Railways will expand its routes and hours of operation to include 24-hour service for its southern lines beginning this spring.

According to the rail service, new train lines will run hourly from Beersheba to Tel Aviv, with stops at Ben-Gurion International Airport, Tel Aviv’s Savidor-Center and Tel Aviv’s Hashalom station. Hours of operation were previously from 6 a.m. to midnight.
