ya after checking it out i found that obviously there already is such a thing.
i don't think trucks in Israel have it. i know for fact that the Israeli "tyulit" doesn't.
a tyulit is a truck that has people instead of cargo. like a bus, just not comfortable.
nowadays these trucks are used mostly for the army because they are really cheap.
some of them are equipped with bars and used for convict transport.

Does Israel use inter-city buses as city buses? I have seen these green MAN's several times. Or are they really inter-city?
