Tel Aviv City Council officials are scheduled to meet on Monday night, February 20, 2012, to discuss Meretz’s push for bus service in the city on Shabbos. Proponents of the move wish to file a request with the appropriate Ministry of Transportation officials to permit operating public transport on Shabbos. Mayor Huldai supports the move.
If the city can show that such a move would be beneficial, the ministry does have the right to approve the request.
