Egged Night Lines begin tonight

Night LinesIt used to be tough to be nocturnal in Jerusalem.

While the city's nightspots and clubs don't start really heating up on go-out nights (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) until well after midnight, the Jerusalem bus system ground to a halt at midnight, and didn't resume service until 6 AM, meaning car-less revelers had to either walk home or shell out the shekels for a cab ride.

But those days of long nighttime walks back from the club zone in Talpiot are over. Egged, responding to consumer demand, has for the second summer running established seven nighttime bus lines that wind their way from the outlying neighborhoods and suburbs of the city all the way down to the nightlife districts (Shlomtzion HaMalka, Emek Refaim, Talpiot, City Center) and back again. 

The seven lines are:

101: Ma'ale Adumim to Talpiot via French Hill, City Center, Liberty Bell Park (Gan Hapa'amon) and Emek Refaim.

102: Gilo to the Central Bus Station via Talpiot, Emek Refaim, Gan Hapa'amon and City Center.

103: Neve Yaakov to Talpiot via Pisgat Ze'ev, French Hill, City Center, Gan Hapa'amon and Emek Refaim.

104: Mevaseret Tzion to Mamilla via Givat Shaul, Beit HaKerem, Kiryat Moshe, Central Bus Station and City Center.

105: Givat Ze'ev to Talpiot via Ramot, Binyanei Ha'oma, City Center, Emek Refaim.

106: Givat Masua to Central Bus Station via Kiryat Menachem, Kiryat Yovel, Talpiot, Emek Refaim and City Center.

107: Chomat Shmuel (Har Homa) to Central Bus Station via East Talpiot, Gan Hapa'amon and City Center.

The buses run to the centers of nightlife from 12:00 AM to 3:00 AM, every half-hour. The lines will operate nightly starting tonight (save for Friday nights) until August 31, at which point they will switch to only Thursday and Saturday evenings.
