Six Jerusalem bus lines will start late-night service on Friday that will take revelers home in the wee hours of the morning, the city said Thursday. The new bus lines, 101-106, will run between midnight and 3:00 a.m. between Jerusalem's city center and various city neighborhoods, from Neve Ya'acov in the north to Gilo in the south, as well as to the suburban communities of Mevaseret Zion, Ma'ale Adumim and Givat Ze'ev. They will start operating at 10:00 p.m. from these neighborhoods to the city center. The city's bus service previously stopped around midnight, leaving late nighters to rely on taxis or private rides to get home. The new routes will operate every night of the week except for Friday night, the city said, in keeping with Sabbath observance in the Holy City.
