History
Opened September 2006

Hod Hasharon Sokolov Railway Station (previously known as Kfar Saba Sokolov) is a passenger railway terminal in Hod HaSharon, Israel. It is the northern terminus of the suburban line to Rishon LeZion. The station was opened in September 2006.

The station is located on Sokolov St at the town boundary of Hod HaSharon and Kfar Saba, at the junction with HaTayasim St. In December 2006, the station served a daily average of 1860 passengers.

As part of the extension of Route 531 westwards, the rail tracks currently terminating at the station will be extended all the way to the Coastal Railway by 2017, at which point the station will cease being a terminal station. This connection will provide a shorter alternative route from the station to Tel Aviv and also enable the possibility of trains passing through the station reaching northern destinations (such as Netanya and Haifa) on the rail network.
