On Election Day, March 17th, 2015, Yad Sarah will transport disabled citizens who are unable to get to polling stations on their own. This service will be provided with a symbolic minimum fee to people who are wheelchair-bound. Those wishing to avail themselves of this service may reserve a ride by phoning *6444.
In a special campaign 30 YadSarahVans will transport dozens of disabled citizens to the polls to allow them to exercise their democratic right.

  • ``We are pleased to have the privilege of transporting the disabled to the polls enabling them to vote and affect the outcome for society just like every other citizen,`` says Yad Sarah CEO Moshe Cohen.

Yad Sarah operates the largest transportation service for the disabled in Israel with Vans that transport more than 100,000 disabled patients annually.
