Updating fares on public transport

Starting on February 1, public transportation fares will be reduced by an average of 2.15% and will be rounded to the nearest half shekel.

The update takes place on all means of public transportation - buses, trains and app rates.

Despite the reduction in rates that is fully reflected in the subscription cards, there are rates that will increase due to the "rounding" decision. Other tariffs have decreased even beyond the decline in the index, again due to the round to the nearest half shekel.

For example, if the price of a single urban trip was NIS 5.90, following the decrease, the new fare is NIS 5.80 and following the round, the new fare is NIS 6.00.

If the price of a long-distance trip was NIS 15, following the update due to the index, the price drops to NIS 14.70 and rounds to NIS 14.50.

The update takes place on all means of public transportation - buses, trains and app rates.

(Updated: 17.2.2021) Customers who purchased "Hofshi Hodshi" contract for February, until January 26, 2021 at the wrong price, are asked to contact the customer service center in the Cllal building to receive a refund for the difference between the prices.


Updating the age of eligibility for the senior citizen discount

In accordance with the provisions of the Senior Citizens Law, as of February 1, 2121, a man will be able to enjoy a senior citizen profile from the age of 67 and a woman from the age of 62.

This amendment will apply to new entrants only. Passengers who have been issued a senior citizen profile prior to the amendment will continue to benefit from a senior citizen discount.

Please note: monthly contract rates will be updated as of Monday 25.1.2021.

New! Charge your Stored Value (Erech Tzavur) contracts at the ticketing kiosks.

The easy way to travel.

From today, it easier, more simple and convenient than ever to purchase tickets.

Citypass and the Ministry of Transportation upgraded the automatic kiosks enabling the purchase and recharging of tickets. Beginning on 16.07.2019 it is possible to purchase the national travel Stored Value (Erech Tzavur) arrangement also at the Light Rail stands and at the Citypass customer service center.

In addition, following the upgrade and user interface improvements, passengers who purchase a ticket can do so in one click at the vending machines – this will drastically reduce the time required to purchase a ticket.

Following the Ministry of Transportation's decision and with the upgrading of the interfaces, from now on, no tickets are sold at the Light Rail stands, and charging the Rav Kav will be possible only through the Stored Value (Erech Tzavur) contracts.

In addition, we improved the user interface in the machines and now it is possible to purchase a one-time paper ticket all in one click. Attention! The use of a one-time paper ticket is valid only for the purchase day and does not enable transferring between Light Rail cars, railroad trains and buses. 

Paper tickets purchased in the past and not yet used are valid on the Light Rail.
