Jerusalem Light Rail: Old City
Posted by Avital Pinnick on August 21, 2011
This video shows the route of the light rail from Damascus Gate to New Gate. If you’ve ever tried to get around this area by car, you will know how bad the traffic is. This should make things a lot easier!
The policemen are on horseback because security is normally tighter around the old city on Fridays, especially Fridays during Ramadan. Also, it was the day after the Eilat attacks. It’s taken over eleven years for this tram to be built!
