Free buses on Shabbat

This upcoming Friday, November 22nd will mark the launch of the free transportation services functioning on Shabbat (Saturday) in the metropolitan area.


The weekend transportation network will connect the cities of Ramat HaSharon, Giv’atayim, Kiryat Ono and Tel Aviv-Yafo. The project is already gaining widespread interest from additional municipalities and is expected to provide a suitable transportation solution for approximately four million metropolitan residents.

The network will be comprised of six routes that run along 300 kilometers and include over 500 stops.

The routes will provide passengers with fast accessibility to city centers as well as various surrounding neighborhoods, whilst taking into consideration areas characterized by Shabbat-observing residents.
Friday 6pm until 2am
Saturday 9h until 5pmThe buses will run every half hour (excluding bus number 710 from Kiryat Ono which will run every hour). The buses and relevant stations will be branded accordingly and will feature dedicated maps.
Every third bus (arriving every hour and a half) will be accessible to people with disabilities.

Ron Huldai, Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo: “The ability to move during the weekend from one point to another is a fundamental right. The metropolitan transportation network was created in order to answer the need of a large part of the Israeli population during the weekends, in the absence of public transportation. The metropolitan transportation network is a particularly important venture, the latest addition to other initiatives of the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality such as AutoTel and Tel-O-Fun.”

Israel Gal, Mayor of Kiryat Ono : “Efficient public transportation throughout the week is crucial and will lead to a reduction of traffic congestion. The new transportation service will be extremely valuable to the young people who can now move freely during the weekend and the older citizens who will be able to spend their weekends in the big city. The new service will result in a decrease in the use of private cars and will therefore reduce the cost of living.”

Avi Gruber, Mayor of Ramat Hasharon : “The new transportation system is a groundbreaking initiative for all the residents in the metropolitan area.”
