Ashdod Ad Halom Railway Station (Hebrew: אשדוד עד הלום) (also known as Ashdod Darom) is a railway station in Ashdod, Israel. It is served by the Binyamina–Tel Aviv–Ashkelon and the Hod HaSharon-Tel Aviv-Ashkelon suburban lines. Ashdod Ad Halom Station was opened in June 1995 and was fully rebuilt in 2003. Starting in 1917 a small station had also operated at the site during the Mandate period on the Beirut–Cairo line until 1947.
The station is located in the Ad Halom area near the eastern entrance to the city of Ashdod. Two bus lines serve the station, one traveling through the 'city' to the central bus station and on to the terminus at Ashdod Marina. In September 2013, it served a daily average of 6,873 passengers.
Until 2013 the travel time from the station to Tel Aviv was 45 minutes. However, since the completion of the new railway through Holon and the new Yavne West Railway Station on 4 August 2013 the travel time from Tel Aviv to the station has been reduced to approximately 35 minutes in each direction.
The station contains a small beverage and refreshment kiosk.
