Dan Bus Company (Hebrew: דן חברה לתחבורה ציבורית‎) is an Israeli bus company based in Tel Aviv. It operates local bus service in the Tel Aviv Metropolitan Area (Gush Dan) as well as some intercity bus services between the Gush Dan area and nearby regions such as Samaria, and a connection between Bne Brak and Jerusalem. Dan operates 1,200 buses and has 2,400 employees. It transports over 600,000 passengers daily.[citation needed] In 2009, 23.5% of all Israeli bus travelers used Dan's lines.[1]

The company was founded as a cooperative on December 1, 1945, from the merger of 2 companies, Galei HaMaavir and Ihud Regev. It demutualised, becoming a limited company in May 2002.

Dan provides bus service six days a week. From Friday afternoon until after Sunset Saturday night, service is suspended in observance of the Jewish Sabbath. Dan buses run until approximately 23:30 p.m. and resume service in the early morning hours.
