The new stationEdit

The Yokneam–Kfar Yehoshua railway station was built as part of the New Jezreel Valley railway, next to the Tishbi junction. The cost of constructing the station is estimated at 92 million NIS and was planned by architectural company Kuriel-Amar. The inspiration for the stations form came from the stations in the historical Jezreel Valley railway and also from the many agricultural structures that can be seen in the area with a similar design, a rectangular structure with a 2 sided roof.
In addition to the station, there is also a water tower, inspired from the water towers that the historical line used. The original water towers were used for refilling the steam locomotives, but the modern tower was added to ensure constant water pressure in the station itself. The tracks are on ground level, but the access to the platforms requires the use of an underpass.
The station is located approximately 3 k"m north-east of Yokneam, 2.5 k"m west of Kfar Yehoshua and 2 k"m east of Kiryat HaRoshet.

The station is located outside of the urban areas and requires passengers to reach the station by vehicle, therefore the number of passengers has remained low.

Public transportation connectionsEdit

Near the station there is a bus terminal. There are seven bus routes that stop at the terminal. The frequency of most of the routes is every one or two hours. All seven routes are operated by Superbus. all of the routes are accessible for wheelchair users.
