Israeli segregated buses get mixed reviews

While some consider the move discriminatory, some Palestinian workers welcome the new service.

    Thousands of Palestinians from the West Bank work in Israel, and for some of them this bus is an advantage.

    It’s a cheap, fast service. And most of the workers say they prefer not to be on the same bus as Israeli settlers.

    The Palestinian Authority says having separate buses for Israelis and Palestinians is discrimination.

    Israeli settlers have said they feel more secure and comfortable if there are no Palestinians on the bus with them.

    The Israeli government says anyone can use the buses, and it will save Palestinians money.
