They are adding more trains this year (not sure if this is new). I myself am considering doing it now :) thanks for the idea!

Doesn't seem like the train is the problem, seem s like the bus from the train to Kever is  the problem.
If someone can get a schedule for busses and post it here that would be great.

They should add more buses or shuttles as they call it, and not more trains

 What’s the best way up to Meron? 2 options. Drive to tzfas and take bus from there or take bus from Yerushalayim? If go to tzfas, get to spend some time there as well. If take bus from Yerushalayim sounds like easier trip. 3rd option drive to parking lot in carmiel. Any suggestions?

Egged is better than Hoffman? Morning is better than middle of the night?

Like I said above, I had a very good experience with Hoffman (albeit a few years ago, but I imagine they've gotten better, not worse).

AFIAK they still run quite yeshivishly. Seems like they had a website, but that's been down for awhile (and seemingly will be forever) and they use a binder to put you name in when you reserve. They dont check your name against a reservation when you actually show up and it's a mad rush to get on thier busses. (This isn't for meron specifically, but their general services throughout the year).
But they get you to where you want to go.
I'm not who you think I am.

Do you need to reserve with them before or can you just get on a bus and pay? Where is their pickup pony close to Geulah?
