Jerusalem, Israel - Lawsuit Challenges ‘Mehadrin’ Egged Bus Line Sponsered By:

Jerusalem, Israel - A woman has filed a petition in the Jerusalem District Court challenging the “mehadrin” Egged bus lines that she claims discriminates by offering better service and lower fares than its other lines between Jerusalem and Haifa.
The plaintiff, Ruth Yasur, also argued that the mehadrin buses pick up and drop off passengers in their neighborhoods while the regular lines travel only between the central bus stations in the cities.
The lawsuit claims the losses to non-mehadrin passengers total 77 million shekels ($21 million).
