Katz: No Bus Discrimination against Women


Transportation and Infrastructures Minister Yisrael Katz ordered his CEO to investigate the circumstances of the discrimination against a student who was requested to sit in the back of an Egged bus on its way from Safed to Ashdod Sunday.

Minister Katz said the severe event requires thorough investigation. “If anyone violated transportation regulations, they will be prosecuted. We will not tolerate discrimination against passengers.”
