The red line will be the "backbone" of the UAV system (a passenger-intensive transport system).
On the red line, the light rail will move from the central station in Petah Tikva, through Beilinson Hospital, along Jabotinsky Street in Bnei Brak and Ramat Gan. The line will continue near the central train station of Savidor, pass through Begin and next to the Azrieli Center, then continue to the south of Kiryat Menasia, Jerusalem Boulevard in Jaffa, and end in the southern city of Bat Yam.
The length of the line is 24 km, including 12 km in a tunnel that will be dug underground, from the Elifelet portal in Neve Tzedek in Tel Aviv to the Shankar portal in Petah Tikva near the Gha interchange.
The red line will include 34 stations, 24 of which will be at ground level and 10 underground. The distance between the ground stations will be about 500 meters. The distance between the underground stations will be about one kilometer.
At the underground level the train will have an exclusive right of way in the tunnel (without vehicles and pedestrians crossing). At ground level, the train will move on an exclusive track and gain priority at intersections to allow for continuous travel as much as possible and maximum accuracy.
During peak hours, the train is expected to reach the underground stations every minute and a half to the stations at the street level, the train will arrive every three minutes during peak hours.
