Starting February 1 public-transit fares will be modified

January 31, 2021

Dear riders,

📢 Starting February 1 2021, public-transit fares will be modified

According to the new model, public-transit fares will be adjusted once a year. The vast majority of fares will be reduced while some of the single trip fares will be slightly increased, due to the rounding of the fare to the nearest half-shekel.

As part of the fare changes, the price for single-trip rides will be modified and the price for monthly and daily passes (Rav Kav) will be reduced. For example, a municipal monthly pass in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Haifa will be reduced from 213 to 208.5 NIS, while a municipal daily pass in these metropolitans will be reduced from 13.5 NIS to 13 NIS.

Single-ride tickets will be modified as a result of the rounding to the nearest half-shekel. For example, a single ride ticket in Ashdod cluster will cost 3.5 NIS, instead of 3.7 NIS, while a single ride ticket in Tel Aviv or Haifa will cost 6 NIS, instead of the current 5.90 NIS.
