Oren Hirsch created an amazing Jerusalem Bus Map using Google Maps. Check out the Jerusalem Bus Map and/or read all about it in this Jerusalem Post article!

When Oren Hirsch arrived in Israel last summer, he thought he would be spending a year working with the post-college World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) program, not tackling the capital’s entire transportation system.

And while Hirsch, a 23-year-old with a degree in urban planning from Cornell University, has been actively engaged in WUJS activities since his arrival, it has been an extracurricular activity – creating and posting a comprehensive Jerusalem city bus map online – that has earned him his accolades thus far.

But the key addition to the site came with Hirsch’s arrival in the capital in July and a subsequent recommendation from a friend that he try to create a map of the confusing web of Jerusalem’s myriad bus routes – a step that hasn’t been taken by Egged for over 10 years and one that is sorely needed in a city of more than 760,000 people.
