SuperBus Disappointed – Chareidim Don’t Want to Drive

The management of SuperBus is not only disappointed, but perplexed, admittedly, as to why members of the chareidi community have not responded to the call to enlist chareidi drivers, at a good hourly wage, good benefit package, and enabling people to work in their home community of Modiin Illit.

YWN-Israel reported last week that the bus company continues making a genuine effort but to date, reports chareidim are uninterested in driving buses it appears.

Company officials explain they have been trying to enlist drivers to take routes in chareidi areas, Modi’in Illit and Beit Shemesh, but the tzibur does not appear interested. The company is willing to pay for the training to obtain a license to operate a public bus, as well as promising hours that accommodate a chareidi lifestyle.

Interestingly, in Elad the problem does not exist, with about 50% of the drivers being chareidi. Company officials are pondering why in Modi’in Illit, residents are not responsive.
