Bochum is located in the Ruhr Area. This area has a colossal network of highways, and hitching around can be quite difficult.
From the central station, take the U35 and get out at stop Rensingstrasse. There you can walk around 500 meter and you'll find the on ramp towards the A43. There is a street crossing that slows down bypassing cars, which is an advantage.
