In Israel there are more bus lines on Saturday

The bus cooperatives on Saturday, Noa Tanua and Shabus announced the launch of two new lines, under their project "Yambus" (Yam is "sea" in Hebrew), one connecting Beersheba and the beaches of Ashkelon and the other connecting Rosh Hayin With leisure areas in Tel Aviv. The project has been made possible by the financial campaign organized by the cooperatives.

In the absence of public transport services on Saturdays due to the status quo, demand is noted and travel bookings were exhausted on the first Saturday that the lines began to operate.
The Yambus line will run every Saturday from now until the end of summer. The trips to Ashkelon and Beer Sheva are priced at 35 shekels round trip per adult and 25 shekels per child.

Project president Roy Schwartz said: "Our goal is the same, to allow people's freedom of movement on Saturday."

The favorable response of the public to the campaign will allow us to inaugurate additional service lines in the coming months. There was already a favorable response to last month's inauguration of a new line following the same route as Dan line 18 between Bat Yam and Tel Aviv, passing Yafo Street. During one of the first trips of the line, there was a violent incident when a handful of ultra-Orthodox extremists threw stones at the bus. There were no injuries and filed a complaint with the police. There were no additional incidents.
