On video: after delays and postponements - the light rail line to Hadassah Ein Kerem will start operating in June (Roni Knafo)
The Ministry of Transportation launched a few days ago two new transportation lines, which will provide transportation services in the Tel Aviv and Ramat Gan area, as well as in the Jerusalem area.
This, shortly after the closure of the "Bavel" company last December, which provided an alternative and focused transportation service for passengers.
Line 114 will be operated by the Dan company in Tel Aviv, and will connect the Hagana train station to the Sheba Tel Hashomer hospital in Ramat Gan.
It will be activated with a high frequency of one every ten minutes, from Sunday to Thursday and between six in the morning and nine thirty in the evening.
The line is expected to leave the Hagana station, continue through Moshe Dayan, Haim Bar Lev, Gaha and Alof Sdeh streets, and end at the Tel Hashomer complex - which will be a final stop, as well as a pickup station.
Line 430 will be operated by the Egged company, and will connect Latron to Jerusalem.
It will be operated with a frequency of eight to twenty minutes, between the years 6 in the morning and 7 in the evening from Latron to Jerusalem, and between 6:15 in the morning and 7:50 in the evening in the opposite direction.
The line is expected to leave Meltron, continue through the Hamad interchange, the String Bridge, Kiryat Havant and the National Insurance parking lot - the final stop, and the pick-up station in the opposite direction.

A parking lot for hundreds of private cars has been established and prepared in Latron, and is even expected to be expanded in the coming months by Netibi Israel.
As a result, route 430 is expected to reduce the traffic jams at the entrance to Jerusalem, due to the transfer of drivers to use public transportation.
The two lines are expected to be an alternative to the use of private vehicles, to allow access to the hospital that comes via trains from all over the country, as well as access to the entrance to the city and the Government Square.
However, both will not be accessible to the disabled, nor will they be able to carry cargo, such as suitcases and bicycles, in the absence of a wide lower trunk available in intercity buses.
