      No Jerusalem Light Rail on Marathon Route; Bus Changes

      The Jerusalem light rail is offering reduced service on Friday because of the city's third annual international marathon, which started at 7:00 a.m. The route from Ammunition Hill to the Central Bus Station will not be running. There will be service from the bus station to Mount Herzl in the south and from Ammunition Hill (Giv'at Hatachmoshet) to Pisgat Ze'ev in the north.

      Buses in the area of the race route may be altered or not in service. A number of streets are closed and will be opened on a gradual basis by the end of the race, expected around 1:30 in the afternoon.
