CityPass still taking us for a ride

Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 14, 2013


Remember before the Jerusalem Light Rail opened, when you could ride the length of the city on the number 18 bus? Remember how Egged discontinued all their downtown lines, because it would be so “convenient” to transfer between trains and buses? Even if you were disabled or carrying heavy groceries and had children with you? Apparently you now have to pay for the privilege. According to David Sedley’s recent blog posting, you now have to pay for the privilege. CityPass no longer honours Egged bus transfers. I wasn’t able to find any confirmation on the CityPass site, only a short page (Hebrew and English) touting the benefits of transferring to connecting lines.
