Having watched the video of the Jerusalem Light Rail system, I am absolutely horrified that the trams make a noise - that is all that we need, more noise. Also, there aren't so many seats in each carriage - and also facing the wrong way. I was recently involved in a bus accident in London where the seats face each other (like on a train) and fell forward and whacked my head on the seat in front, suffering a brain injury. This is not good. There are also not enough seats, and many pregnant women and people will not enjoy just hanging onto the rails in the middle of the tram. What will happen is that the pregnant women and elderly will have the seats and everybody else will have to stand. I was always really happy with the Jerusalem buses, as the seats were really close together. The only downside was one got on and off a bus with the drivers driving off at high speed. Please bring back the buses!!!
