Bus Subsidies will see worse roads and proposed new airlines to fly from Israel to India and China
Bus and Train Fares cut but resulting in less road improvements
The Prime Minister this week announced that the price of petrol and public transport will fall but Haaretz is now reporting that the Cabinet will be asked to vote on Sunday for the subsidy to cover lower bus and train fares to be covered by reducing the government budget for building and maintaining roads.
