Summertime night lines will begin across the country on Thursday night, June 28, in the Transportation Ministry’s annual campaign to reduce the number of accidents caused by drunk driving.

The nighttime bus lines will service 55 cities and towns across the country until 4:00 AM every day of the week except Fridays. An estimated 52,000 people use the night lines per week. “Every accident that is avoided is a sign of success,” said Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz.

The summer night lines initiative began in Jerusalem six years ago and has expanded each year. For the first time, smartphone users can download a “Kav Laila” application with maps and timetables.
