Public bus from Ashdod to Jerusalem
There are good bus connections between Ashdod and Jerusalem. Bus N° 438 and 448 make the journey of 70 kilometers in less than 1.5 hours for NIS20 per person (one way). Both buses leave from the bus terminal in the center of Ashdod, but they also make a stop at the Ha-Namal Junction about 1 km walk from the cruise terminal. It's good to check the bus timetable before you leave.
TIP: The last stop in Jerusalem's central bus terminal is about 2 km walk from the walled old town. You can take a local bus that brings you closer. Buses N° 8, 25 and 32 are just some of the possibilities.
