Israel’s transportation planning lags behind OECD countries, and we are paying the price – endless traffic jams, loss of employment productivity and free time, air pollution and contributing to the climate crisis – these are the consequences of private car-oriented transportation planning. In recent years, Israeli governments have tried unsuccessfully to close investment gaps in infrastructure, which are tens of percent lower than in other OECD countries, and to promote ambitious public transportation projects. However, as long as effective, integrated public transportation planning is not practiced in Israel, the public will continue to suffer without a proper alternative.
