TRANSPORTATION within Israel
Transportation will be provided daily from the city of Beer Sheva to the venue on the Sede Boqer campus on both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and back at the end of the day (Tuesday it will be after the dinner and concert, after the last session). Details and schedule will be uploaded to our webpage, and will appear at the end of the program.
We will time the bus according to the train schedule from the north. The bus will have two stops in Beersheva, near the “D" dormitories on Rager Street, and at the Beersheva “North"/University train station. Check our web page for exact times later in the summer.
Please note: The train service to Beersheva from points north has greatly improved over the last few years, and is highly recommended. HOWEVER, CHECK THE TRAIN SCHEDULE TO MAKE SURE IT IS RUNNING!
If you prefer to drive directly here, then look for name of the community “Midreshet Ben-Gurion", on highway 40 from Beer Sheva to Mitzpe Ramon, just south of Kibbutz Sede Boqer. See here the location. It is not Kibbutz Sede Boqer.
PARKING: Parking at Sede Boqer is unlimited and no permission is required. If you wish to park in Beer Sheva and take advantage of our shuttle bus, there is a parking lot just outside of the university for a slight fee, near the swimming pool, and very close to where the bus will be waiting.
Public Bus to Sede Boqer Campus from the Central Bus station in Beer Sheva . The name of the community is actually “Midreshet Ben-Gurion". The name of the bus company is “Metropoline" and they operate two bus lines, numbers 60 and 64, which come directly into the Campus at Sede Boqer (one should ask for tickets to "Midreshet Ben-Gurion"), and it's about a 45 minute ride. Getting to Evens Auditorium from the bus stop can be seen on the interactive map linked above.
