It has been almost two years since Jerusalem's new trams began running.
Our light rail is the first in Israel.
Strange that only now the company decided we needed a campaign to teach tram riders how to get in and out without pushing and shoving.
Now you see their signs everywhere--on illuminated billboards,
and on the sliding doors of the tram.
They even hired people to pass out thousands of pamphlets (along with a bonbon).
The message is that first you let passengers get out of the tram and they you can get on.
Pretty basic, eh?
But what is missing in the picture of the three people are the 247 others who are crammed into each of the two cars of the train.
Can you believe?? They even painted arrows and lines on the ground for us at ALL of the stations next to where the tram comes to a stop.
Now if they could just teach their drivers not to close doors on people.
Of course we all rush in, otherwise we often get squished by the strong doors closing after a few seconds, or, we get left behind to wait another eight or so minutes for the next tram (which is also too crowded).
