Tel Aviv Central Bus Station, known as the New Central Bus Station (Hatakhana Hamerkazit Hahadasha) is the main bus station of Tel Aviv, Israel. The station serves Egged, Connex, Superbus, Metropoline and Nateev Express intercity bus routes as well as local Dan, Egged and Kavim city and suburban buses. Located in the south of the city, it opened on August 18, 1993. The Tel Aviv Central Bus Station is the second largest central bus station in the world, covering 230,000 m² and a total area of 44 dunams (44,000 m²). Construction began on December 14, 1967, but work was prematurely halted due to financial difficulties. The building was finally completed in August 1993. The complex includes a shopping mall serviced by 29 escalators and 13 elevators with over 1,000 shops and restaurants. Only three of the seven floors are used as a bus terminal. The main entrances are on the north and east sides of 4th floor. Most intercity buses leave from a departure hall on the north (main) wing on 6th floor. On the 7th floor, which was an addition to the original building, there is a departure hall for local buses (to destinations within Gush Dan) on the north wing, and another departure hall for intercity buses (to destination in the Galilee) on the south wing. The wings of this level are completely separated. Tel Aviv Central Bus Station is located near Tel Aviv HaHagana Railway Station, but there is no direct link between them.
