Israel to test double- decker buses for public transport

The Israeli National Public Transport Authority in the Ministry of Transport has announced it will carry out an experiment this year in which five double-decker buses will be purchased for a trial on urban routes of the two largest transportation networks.

 

Egged Cooperative, the largest transportation operator in Israel and Dan the biggest leading operator of public transportation in the Gush Dan region.

 

Egged used double-decker buses on inter-city routes more than 10 years ago until taking them off the roads because of technical problems.

 

The new experiment is being conducted with more advanced buses and for local use within cities. Using double-decker buses would reduce traffic jams, almost double the number of passengers for one bus and would reduce pollution.
