It almost makes up for his breaking Shabbat

Public transportation generally does not run in Israel on Shabbat, so I was surprised to see an Egged intercity bus being driven through Holon yesterday, on Shabbat morning. It was of course not in service. But as often happens with not-in-service buses, the driver picked an arbitrary route number to put on the overhead display.

In this case, I had to laugh. On Shabbat morning this driver had chosen the route number 400. Normally, of course, the 400 is a charedi bus which goes from Bnei Brak to Jerusalem. The driver may have been breaking Shabbat, but at least he has a sense of humor.
