New bus routes from Bet Shemesh

Kol HaKavod to Shmuel Greenberg and the Bet Shemesh Transportation Committee. Under Greenberg's leadership, they have finally arranged some new bus routes for the city that have been long overdue.

In a press release on Friday, Greenberg announced that final details and approvals have been worked out and very shortly the following new bus routes will begin operation:

  • The 419 bus from RBS A to Jerusalem. This bus will go through RBS A and then down through Ein gedi area and out to the 38 and Highway 1 to Jerusalem (no information about the route inside Jerusalem, so I don't know if it will go to the Central Bus Station or to the Har Hotzvim area - I think ot Har Hotzvim as it is being described as similar to the 417 route, though the comparison was about RBS)
  • The 412 bus rote from Bet Shemesh to Tel Aviv. The route will begin in RBS A, go through RBS B and parts of Bet Shemesh (like the route of the 416) and head out to Tel Aviv via Highway 1. This will give residents another option for travel to Tel Aviv and not be solely reliant on the train.
  • Some route changes to the 497 and 454.
Kol HaKavod to Greenberg and to his team. Anything to improve the public transportation situation is welcome and blessed.


  1. how soon will the 419 start, and how frequent will they be running?

  2. I did not see any schedule or exact starting date. check the Egged website for schedules (the 419 will be run by Egged)

  3. I'm really looking for to the 419; it was supposed to be a while ago, but I'd glad that it's finally coming (hopefully it will run to Har Hotzvim, and not just CBS).

  4. Do you think it will make it any easier to get to RBS from Rehovot?

  5. There is nothing yet on the egged website about the 419 - when will it start running?

  6. I dont know. I read in one of the papers last week that there is a delay with the new routes because Superbus is fighting the division of the routes. I dont remember the details of what they want or say is unfair, but I have yet to see a timetable.
