Carmelit Subway




Street view

Carmelit Subway rating : 0 No votes yet

Due to the geography of Haifa, a city situated along the sea and on top of Mount Carmel, it was considered necessary to build an efficient transport system that would link the commercial and leisure districts located at sea level to the modern centre and residential areas on the top of the mountain. The 274 meter difference in altitude was overcome by the solution of an underground funicular- the Carmelit Subway that was opened in 1959, starts at Paris Square at sea level and runs straight up for 1.75km to Gan Ha'em on Mount Carmel. Tickets are available from ticket vending machines that have instructions in Hebrew and English.


Open Hours: The Carmelit runs approximately every ten minutes between the hours of 6:00 and 22:00 on Sunday through Thursday,6:00-15:00 on Fridays and from one hour after sundown until 22:00 on Saturdays.
