It is valid throughout the country, on all bus lines, trains and light rails.
It grants a 20% discount. For example, if you load it with 100 NIS, you will get 125 NIS worth transportation.
The best way is to get your Rav Kav when you land at Ben Gurion Airport. There is a new information desk in the arrival hall of terminal 3 near exit 2.
Desk opening hours:
Sunday- Thursday from 7:00 – 23:00
Friday, from 7:00-15:00
You can get a Rav Kav card in any central bus station and many other service points in malls etc.
You must present a Rav Kav when using public transportation in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv (and soon it will be necessary everywhere). In the rest of the country, you can still pay cash to the bus driver without a Rav Kav.
For train rides, you can get single tickets at the stations, using cash or credit card.
When getting a Rav Kav at the airport or other official service point, ask for a personal Rav Kav- with your picture.
The first personal card is free.
If you lose a personal card, you dont lose the money you charged on it! It will be applied to your new card.
The anonymous Rav Kav costs 5 NIS and can be used for more than one passenger.
Every bus driver should have these cards, and you can buy them on your first bus ride.
Both types give you the 20% discount.
Kids under 5 traveling with an adult- travel for free (:
For kids between 5-18 years old, ask for a personal Rav Kav with a youth discount and get 50% off.
