Olim Denied Transport to Homes in Judea-Samaria at Night


Arutz Sheva learned that the shuttle services from Ben Gurion International Airport to the homes of new olim (immigrants) are not something that can be assumed applies to everyone.

Reports have surfaced that many of the shuttle companies, which the Ministry of Absorption funds in order to transport new olim from the airport to their new homes free of cost, deny rides to olim moving to Judea and Samaria and desiring to travel at night. Olim are then faced with the choice of either being dropped off at the nearest security checkpoint where someone else would have to pick them up, or be driven to a rest facility until morning, when the shuttle drivers would agree to transport them. Accommodations at the airport itself are not available.
