History
Opened September 20, 2000

Beersheba Center Railway Station is an Israel Railways terminal in Beersheba. It is located on Yitzhak Ben Zvi street next to the city's central bus station and HaNegev Mall.[1] It is one of two railway stations serving the city, the other being Beersheba North, located near the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.

Design[edit]

The station consists of three passenger platforms (two side platforms and a center platform) serving a total of four tracks. Its design allows for additional platforms to be constructed west of the existing platforms in the future. The station building is located in the north end of the platforms.

Services[edit]

As of the Fall 2015 schedule there are three trains in each direction per hour between Beersheba Center and central Israel during most hours of the day. Two of these trains use the Railway to Beersheba with a travel time of between 1hr 5mins and 1hr 15mins (depending on the stops along the route) to Tel Aviv HaHagana Railway Station, with some continuing as far north as Nahariya. The other train serving the station uses the Ashkelon–Beersheba railway and the Coastal railway with a travel time between 1hr 30mins and 1hr 45mins to Tel Aviv HaHagana via Ashkelon and Rishon LeZion. These trains then terminate in Hod HaSharon.
