If the general strike is expanded on Thursday to include Ben-Gurion Airport, as appears likely, Egged will increase the number of buses to and from Eilat, the bus company announced Wednesday. Egged added buses to its intercity routes on Wednesday in an attempt to answer the need for public transportation created when Israel Railways stopped operations as part of the strike.
