The Transportation Ministry called on bus riders in Gush Dan to give themselves extra time to get to work Sunday morning as new transportation reforms got their first test.

The reforms, which affected Egged, Dan and Kavim bus lines in the greater Tel Aviv area, included canceled bus lines, changed bus lines, increased fares, new transfer procedures and move bus stops.

Changes began Friday morning but Sunday is the first day of normal rush hour traffic and commutes under the new system and changes. A number of small hiccups were reported Friday morning as the changes took effect. Passengers complained of bus delays and magnetic ticket malfunctions.
