New Tel Aviv Bus Station: World's Largest

By MOSHE RON
Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent
TEL AVIV—Bus compan-
ies boycotted a new central
bus station 36 years ago, de-
claring there would not be
enough passengers for such
a large station. Now this sta-
tion has become much too
small for the heavy city
traffic and large numbers of
passengers, creating a ma-
jor problem for municipal
engineers responsible for the
city's traffic.
Four years ago, Arye Pilz,
together with the "Egged''
bus company and the "Solel
Boneh" building company,
began construction of a new
central bus station on the
corner of Levinsky and Sal-
ame streets. It will connect
Tel Aviv with other'parts of
the country and will become
the largest bus station in the
world.

In the times of the British
Mandate, Pilz and his family
lived at 81 Hayarkon Street,
Tel Aviv. Hagana leaders
held their secret meetings at
his home and prepared plans
to defend the population
against Arab attacks. In the
same house was a well known
cafe, frequented by British
soldiers and members of the
secret police, who searched
the premises several times
for hidden arms.
After World War II, Pilz
built some big houses, with
arcades, • and the El Al Build-
ing in Ben Yehuda Street,
and is now developing the
large Dizengoff Center.
According to plan, the Cen-
tral Bus Station in Tel Aviv
will be completed by 1974.
There will be 150 departure
points and 20,000 buses will
be catered to each day.
The 45-dunam area of the
bus station will be surround-
ed by seven-story office
blocks. The passengers will
reach departure plaiforms
by escalator. There will he
bridges for incoming and
outgoing traffic.
Outside the bus stop, lux-
urious shops and restaurants

are being built, as well as a
cinema, a business center,
art galleries and a synzi-
gogue.
Israeli and foreign Jews
have bought shops in this
area for more than $16,000,-
000. Those who bought shops
five years ago, have tripled
their investment.
Arye and Abraham Pilz
and the Egged spokesman,
Mordehai Shifman, say this
bus station is planned for
traffic until the year 2000.
When Egged built a new
modern central bus station
in Beersheba 10 years ago,
it left two platforms open for
traffic with Hebron and
Cairo. At the time people
queried the wisdom of this
decision but now there is al-
ready a bus line between
Beersheba and Hebron.
The Tel Aviv taxi com-
panies are demanding that
the old central bus station is
put at their disposal, but this
has been refused by the bus
companies Egged and Dan.
The building of the new bus
station has been delayed for
a year due to lack of quali-
fied workers and cement.
Arye and Abraham Pilz
hold 50 per cent of the
shares, Egged 35 and Solel
Boneh 15 per cent of the
company that owns the new
central bus station.
