CityPass, the operator of Jerusalem’s Light Rail, is launching a one-time debt elimination program, allowing residents to repay fines without accrued financial penalties. The initiative will take effect Wednesday through January 31, and provide the public a last chance to pay their debts on preferential terms.

When the initiative concludes debtors will be required to pay the amount of original fines, as well as all interest accumulated via penalties, and face possible prosecution procedures. Payment can be made via the CityPass website at:, or at the CityPass Service Center in Jerusalem.
