The electronic signboard at a Hebron Road bus stop was out of order for a few hours last Monday morning.

The stop, located at the junction of Hebron Road and Rivka Street, serves quite a few lines, including some of the east-side bus companies connecting the southern Arab neighborhoods such as Sur Bahir and Beit Safafa with the Old City and the northern Arab neighborhoods. It is one of the most packed and busiest stops, and the sudden disabling of the board showing timetables seemed a real burden for the passengers waiting there.
