haifa already has metro-rail as part of the train tracks (a mini train for suburbs), and of course the worlds smallest underground metro line also.
these bus-rails that were tested this year and aproved also which will have special lanes for them, it is now u/c and will be ready only in 2009 so I also dont know how they look like. maybe like a long bus, they have 180 seats. they supposed to be somthing between bus and rail, they stick to the platforms on magnetics. the platforms for them are 2.5m wide and 50m long.
I dont know how many Haifa bought but since we have light rail and metro and soon a second cable car and also spending billions on carmel tunnels, its probably much less.

not only egged and dan - some other cities have been privatized with other local companies, like kavim and metrodan and connex.

a new train station
A large train station scheduled to cater to the inhabitants of Holon and Bat Yam is currently being built over an overall area of 14,100 m2 between the lanes of highway 20 (Netivei Ayalon), in the section between Holon and Bat Yam, where the underground water is close to the surface of the soil.
Completing the station up to the final stages consists of complex civil engineering tasks, construction and system works, as well as finishing and design touches - all subject to the station operation's requirements.

This station is the sixth station being built by Ortam Sahar teams.

Dan public bus company.
the company activate lines in Tel Aviv metropolitan (Gush Dan) and that's were the name come from.
most of the buses are city buses.
in the last few years they activate few bus lines to Jerusalem (from Tel Aviv and Bney Brak).
they also have lines to settlements beyond the greel line
they more populat than Egged in Tel Aviv area.
the company also have a daughter tour bus company called United Tours.
