The Big Felafel

The 74? That seems logical

When it’s all color coded and has diamonds behind it, I could almost get excited about the new Egged bus lines. New bus lines? Well, Jerusalem has been planning a light rail for many years now, but only now are they actually dealing with the traffic nightmares it could possibly cause. It’s not that I’m disrespecting their efforts, I can’t wait to get from one end of Herzl street to the other, it’s just that I get a little confused when I see the 74 bus stop show up. Sorry to readers not living in Jerusalem, this may not be all that riveting…

Here’s what I find funny. The 14 bus has turned into the 21(more or less) and the 21 turned into the 74 (more or less)… so the real question is… why not keep the original bus numbers and just have a slight change of route!

Brian from This Normal Life quotes the Jerusalem Post article which really demonstrates the lack of communication among the city’s transportation units.

  1. I find myself walking a lot. If the 18, 4, 14, or 21 can’t do it, I’m on foot.

    But what does this MEAN? “Express route”? As an about-to-be-Har Homa resident, I want to know if this means non-stop to city center OR is it just the 21 renumbered?

    Tamago sushi’s take-out sample today was excellent, by the way. Spicy tuna! Will try the rest of the menu soon and let you know….they also do delivery for 10 NIS.

    B”H Um,…you’re not actually expecting Eged to make sense, are you?

    Can’t wait for the light rail. I love trains!
