The High Court accepted on Thursday the Transportation Ministry's recommendations to allow gender-segregated buses "according to free will."

According to the Court, everyone may sit wherever they want on the bus, even in "Mehadrin Lines," and drivers must work to prevent passengers from being forced, through violence and other means, to sit elsewhere.
