Discriminatory bus fares against non-Haredis should be fixed

A demand has been rightly made to fix an unfair type of bus price:
Yesh Atid MK Dr. Adi Kol demanded to know why so-called “mehadrin” bus lines (with separate male and female seating) which service haredi towns and destinations continue to enjoy cheaper fares than bus routes of a similar distance and time.

Kol submitted her inquiry as a parliamentary question in the Knesset plenum on Wednesday afternoon and asked why the issue had not been addressed despite the recommendations of the state comptroller on the matter.

“It has come to my attention that despite reforms to [public transportation] fares, bus routes which are not ‘mehadrin’ are more expensive than those which are ‘mehadrin,’” said Kol, and compared the price of the No. 996 ‘mehadrin’ bus of NIS 30 whose route from Jerusalem to Kfar Hassidim is two and a half hours, with the fare of non “mehadrin” bus No. 960’s fare of NIS 42 whose route from Jerusalem to Kibbutz Yagur takes one hour 45 minutes.
Oh she's right about this. Non-Haredis should not have to pay more while Haredis pay less for bus fare, and the bus companies should start changing this entirely.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green

  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
