Jerusalem: 22 Bus Lines to Feed Light Rail on Jan 13th


The Transportation Ministry, Jerusalem municipality and staff of the master plan for transportation have completed their preparations for implementing the "South West Pulse", which will integrate 22 bus lines linking directly to the city's light rail system, from starting January 13th. The lines originate in the neighborhoods between Kiryat Menachem and Kiryat Moshe, as well as the Katamon-Gonenim area.

On instructions of Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, ministry experts must confirm that Citipass, the operators of the light rail, has met safety and other service standards, including a frequency of a train every nine minutes.
