Tiberias

Tiberias, one of the four Holy Cities in Jerusalem and the largest city in the Galilee region of the country. It also serves as the gateway to the Golan Heights to the north and east. Although it is not one of the largest cities in Israel, Tiberias plays an important role in the country’s public transportation network.  It is a hub for long distance buses from many directions, and a frequent transfer point for those wishing to travel to or from the northernmost reaches of the country.  It is also a hub for local bus connections within the region, as the bus routes connecting the kibbutzim and moshavim in the immediate area and the city of Beit Shean to the south also originate or terminate at Tiberias’s new Central Bus Station.  

Since 2016, Superbus has been the operator of local bus service within Tiberias itself, as well as the operator of services between Tiberias and other cities and towns in the Galilee region, including Beit Shean and Afula.

Until it discontinued its Israeli operations in late 2013, Connex operated the local bus service within Tiberias and the surrounding communities. The services have since been taken over by Superbus.
