© Egged. The history of Egged started 72 years ago, in January 1933, when four public transportation companies were united into one organization, which the national poet Chaim Nachman Bialik called "Egged". Even so, the history of a motorized public transport in Eretz Israel actually started long before, at the end of the First World War, after the British Army had defeated the Turkish Army and the Government of His Majesty King George V received the mandate to rule here.

Egged, the leading public transport operator in Israel, is one of the largest public transport companies in the world, and provides 60% of public transport services in Israel throughout the whole country.


Today Egged employs 6, 242 people, of whom 2, 304 are members of the cooperative and 3, 938 are salaried employees. There are 4, 327 drivers and transportation worker, 916 management employees, 999 service and maintenance workers, 34 operational branches, 31 service depots, 25 central bus stations and 4 intersection terminals.
