Transport minister seeks to add West Bank to public transit reform

Almost a month after transportation reforms went into effect, Transportation Minister Israel Katz expressed dismay on Tuesday that towns over the Green Line and in the Galilee were not included in the plan.

Katz turned to Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon in an effort to get those communities included.

“It is unacceptable that two areas of the country that already suffer from being far from population centers are left out of the plan and are excluded from reforms that are supposed to encourage further use of public transportation,” Katz said, adding that the exclusion adds to the problems facing travelers in Judea and Samaria, where there are already many security problems on the roads.
