The light rail will begin operations late on Monday afternoon after a 30 hour strike by the light rail drivers that froze service during the intermediate days of Succot, one of the busiest times in Jerusalem.

The municipality reported that just after filing an appeal with the Jerusalem Local Labor Court to force the drivers back to work, the drivers came to an agreement with Connex Israel, the company that operates the trains.

The drivers demanded better salaries on par with city bus drivers.
