Notice that if you try to continue northwards (on Road #4 to Akkra/Akko) then it is very difficult to find a good ride, since there are plenty of service taxis serving this route, like 1 taxi every 30 seconds, and drivers seem to assume you try to stop them. This problem does not apply to hitchhiking towards [[Nazareth]] on Road #75.

Hitching Out

North or East

Get to the "Check-Post" Junction near Lev Hamifratz central station and go to the bus stop in the east of the junction and hitchhike the traffic that is heading east. After you hitchhiked out you can continue to the north through Yagur junction through the rural areas.

Notice that if you try to continue northwards (on Road #4 to Akkra/Akko) then it is very difficult to find a good ride, since there are plenty of service taxis serving this route, like 1 taxi every 30 seconds, and drivers seem to assume you try to stop them. This problem does not apply to hitchhiking towards Nazareth on Road #75.

South towards Tel Aviv, Jerusalem

Get to Hof Hacarmel Central Bus Station (very easy to get there by bus, 5.50 shekels) and head for the beach. Go inside the bus station though security, then take the tunnel that leads out to the train station square. Once you are in front of the train station, don't go through security into the station, but go down the winding staircase on the side of the building, which goes to a tunnel leading under the tracks and out to the beach. Walk south along the beach for a few minutes, until you see the Microsoft building to your left. Then climb to the highway, walk a little to the south, and when you see a place where cars can stop, start thumbing.
