Who is entitled to discounts?
The first Stage ("A") of the fares reform is already starting in “Dan”. The aim of the reform is to significantly improve the conditions of peoples who are entitled to discounts on fare for public transport and for the first time allow them free or discounted up to 50% fare traveling on all lines of public transportation in the country. Also the reform would increase the number of passengers who are entitled to these discounts.
Discounts for fares will be available only through the personal Rav-Kav card. For updating personal eligibility profile you must apply to one of the service centers of “Al Ha-Kav" around the country.
The update can be done in "Dan" offices and also in offices of other public transport operators.
