Jerusalem Light Rail
‘Kfir Jerusalem Light Rail’ serves hundreds of thousands of passengers, among them the residents of the city of Jerusalem and its diverse population.
In April 2021, Shapir began (in collaboration with the Spanish CAF Company) the operation of the Jerusalem Light Rail’s Red Line. The line is 14 km long. The 46 railcars on the line carry approximately 170,000 passengers daily. In 2022, the number of light rail passengers stood at approximately 3.25 million per month. Since Shapir began operating the light rail in Jerusalem, there has been a consistent improvement in passenger service that is expressed in the timetable’s precision, the addition of trips every day and shorter travel times. Shapir also offers additional services for the passengers’ benefit, including fee payments via an app and improving accessibility to the information on the website. At the end of Shapir’s construction work, the Red Line will be 40 kilometers long, carry160 railcars and approximately half a million passengers daily.
