    As #4 said, nothing new here. It's happening now under Metropolin, and it was already practice when Egged ran these lines. The reason nobody mentions this, is that us decent, working, secular folks don't want to lose this nice little favor the(semi)public bus companies are doing to us. So let's just hope this innocent little case of investigative journalism didn't wake up some bearded hotheads over in mea sharim and bnei barak. And, you know- but i'm just daydreaming here - maybe one day decent very hard-working israelis, still unable to afford private transport, can hop on a bus to visit their lonely, ailing auntie on their free shabbat. Since a clear majority of the jews in Israel isn't observant, one would expect the public institutions to serve the interests of the people. With all due respect to religious minority of course, nobody would force a good and honest religious person to drive or ride a bus on the sabbath. That's just this cute little concept called tolerance.
