Airport, here we come
The Afikim company has won the Transportation Ministry tender and will run, as of next week, the 485 direct line from Jerusalem to Ben-Gurion Airport. Buses will run 24 hours (except Shabbat), hourly, from Museums Avenue (below the government ministries) past the Knesset, the Wohl Rose Garden, Jerusalem International Convention Center and the central bus station, going from there to the airport. The buses will have Wi-Fi service; cost is NIS 16 per ticket.

Go home
A painful rejection hit the residents of the German Colony this week, when the court turned down their first appeal against the light rail’s Blue Line on Emek Refaim Street. After a hearing this past Sunday at the Administrative Court, Justice David Mintz’s ruling the next day approved the municipality’s side and rejected the residents’ opposition to that segment of the light rail.
