The Egged transportation company resumed its bus service on Mea Shearim Street in Jerusalem on Sunday. In the first stage, the routes will return to partial operation and Egged hopes to fully restore them within a short time. The routes that travel on Mea Shearim Street are Route 1 and Route 2.
Egged’s decision to stop bus service on this street was reached over a year ago due to daily riots taking place. The neighborhood’s hareidi residents protested against the immodest advertisements on the buses, in many cases tearing out the advertisements in question.
