In accordance with the instructions of the Health Ministry as a result of the spread of the coronavirus, the mayors who operate the “Shabbos buses” – public transportation on Shabbos – announced that the buses are canceled until further notice, Kikar H’Shabbos reported.
The initiative began four months ago but has currently come to a halt due to the Health Ministry’s directives to Israelis to avoid leaving their homes unless absolutely necessary.
Public transportation in general has been reduced and there will be no public transportation from Thursday night at 8 p.m. until Sunday morning. On weekdays, buses will stop running at 8 p.m.
