I have been there and travelled Tel-Aviv - Jerusalem and Haifa - Tel Aviv. Trains were
quite loaded on both trips, although much less for the final leg into Jerusalem because
this part is slow and the station not very conveniently located. Otherwise you could
easily compare the Israeli railways with any European commuter operation. There would
likely be even more passengers if there were more trains, that's why the network is still
expanding. There are major places, like Tiberias, where the trains still don't go. The major
hindrance for me is that not trains run during Shabbat...

Does the state promote rail transport? Israel is small and denselly populated enough so that rail can be the main form of transportation and make transportation in general much more effective.

Pretty negligible actually, only around 2-3% of the total number of passenger trips. The number of passengers using buses is around 10 times higher than the number of passengers using the train.

Yes, the gob suport economicly the operations of ISR. IN 2012 finally ISR give their first profits. now, the Israeli gov. finnance 60% of the operations of the company.

In cases like ISR, is not his final mission to be a profit company. One of the reasons is because ISR is seen as a public service, and that means that the tickets must be affordable, lets remember that israel suffers of a cronical pricing crisis.

In the next years ISR want to be more profitable working in publicity + real state (next to stations, more commercial areas etc ) and develop a cargo division. (its the biggest project at the time in ISR, after the electrification proyect ), this new division of ISR will be 49% ISR and the next 51% will be part of a private partner.

Are you sure of your numbers ? ISR is increasing the number of passenger in a 10 to 15% per year, the convervative estimates that ISR will transport 300 million passengers per year in 2040, but i think that number can be accomplished, before, maybe in 2030, lets remember that with the new lines + the new ETCS + the electrification program the company can expand enormously his train offer.

Absolutely. There are around 650 million passengers per year using Israeli buses, compared to only 50-55 million rail passengers. Despite years-long stagnation in the number of bus passengers, they are still by far the most popular form of public transportation in Israel, mainly because they simply have superb coverage: There are hundreds of different bus lines and thousands of bus stations, compared to only 10 rail lines which serve around 50 train stations.

Well it would be interesting to know the modal split where different options can
be used for the same journey.

All trains I have used were well patronized, except on the final stretch towards
Jerusalem, I suppose due to the poor location of the station in this city.

No, the location os actually next to Malcha shopping centre where many people go to. The problem is the bendy route which takes 45 minutes, which is quite a long time between Bet Shemesh and Malcha.

The first video of the new color of the alstom trains of ISR. Lets remember that this units came to Israel in 1996 so, are with the Alstom Prima JT the oldest units in Israel. This units were assambled in Israel by Haargaz

I´m glad to see that ISR is now working as a efficient company, this have been made after a long work made by a responsable CEO ( a real CEO, not a former politican or a former military commander ) and by a modern Organizational Structure formed by people that know how the bussines work.

The blue color (same design used by the siemens vaggio) is now more representative of the company i really hope that in the future the bombardier´s DD use the same color.
