Ministry of Transportation Supports Mehadrin Bus Lines

According to Bechadrei News, the Ministry of Transportation has finally finished its study and has come to conclusions. The ministry has decided to support mehadrin bus lines being legalized and available to haredi communities that request it. As long as there is no coercion, there is no reason to not allow it legally.

The study was conducted by taking 3000 rides, using all buses that are deemed to be mehadrin lines. During these 3000 bus rides, not a single incident occurred indicating coercion or any other problem.

The Supreme Court will, supposedly, be deciding at the end of next month how to rule on the legality of the mehadrin lines. I say "supposedly" because they were supposed to come to a ruling a number of times already but it was delayed each time for further study.
