    As just one example, there are industrial areas in them like Har Hotzvim that do not (yet) employ only haredi people and those people need to get around too. Most of the buses there are haredi lines and these days, you can easily wait 20 mins or more for one that will take you to the central bus station. The mehadrin lines do pass the bus station, but they "are not permitted" to drop people off there.// A large supermarket in Meah Shearim recently opened one paying line only for men, due to threats from customers to boycott it if they don't. //Not all haredim agree with these innovations but in today's Israel, a fringe dominates both politics and commerce. When the time comes, the post-mortem on these developments, which have NO basis in halakha or in tradition, will be interesting to read.
