“One Way” - The public transport service revolution, connecting Israel by public transport, making it easy and worthwhile to travel wherever, and whenever you like at one clear cost. It simply pays to travel more.

At the heart of the revolution: a ‘Nationwide Unlimited Monthly Pass’

As of 01.08.22, a nation-wide unlimited monthly pass will be available to all public transport passengers in Israel, enabling travel on all public buses around the country, without limitations, for a fixed monthly rate of only NIS 225. The pass is also valid for unlimited travel on the Jerusalem Light-Rail, Haifa’s Cable Express, Metronit bus rapid transit system, and the Carmelit underground funicular railway. Railway travel will add a certain cost per ticket, based on the distance traveled.

A ‘Regional Unlimited Monthly Pass’

For those living in the Negev and the Galilee, and any other region not part of the country’s three largest metropolitan areas (area 2 on the map), they will be able to purchase a discounted pass; the Regional Unlimited Monthly Pass, enabling unlimited travel of up to 40 km within the region, at a fixed cost of only NIS 99.
In fact, all former local discounts will now be converted from a single-trip discount to an especially worthwhile regional unlimited monthly pass.

More extensive permanent discounts and free travel for over 75-year-olds!

For the first time ever, passengers aged 75 and older will travel free of charge on public transport everywhere! All other senior citizens will continue to enjoy a 50% discount.

More extensive permanent discounts also for children and adolescents

For the first time ever, 5 to 18 year olds will be able to purchase an unlimited monthly pass at a 50% discount, meaning that a nationwide unlimited monthly pass would cost them only NIS 112.5 and a regional unlimited monthly pass only NIS 49.5.

More extensive permanent discounts for disabled persons and those eligible for National Insurance benefits

The discount for disabled persons and those eligible for income support will be extended from 33% to 50% per trip.

Making public transport fares easy and simple

Public transport travel costs will be updated and become uniform throughout the country, so that from now on you will know the exact cost of each trip you make, based on this simple distances table.

The more you travel, the lower the cost

With the new scheme, those who regularly use public transport will enjoy unlimited travel at discounted prices. From now on you will be able to travel throughout the country, without limitations, for a single price.

A smart application for unlimited traveling

With the new scheme, you can pay via the payment apps and rest assured that you will always pay the lowest possible price. The app will make sure you get the best price, whatever option you choose. All you need to do is embark, and be on your way.

Q&A

  • But how do I know in advance which pass to purchase?
    It’s very simple! If you normally travel at least 3-4 times a week, you can buy a Nationwide Unlimited Monthly Pass or a Regional Unlimited Monthly Pass and enjoy carefree travel throughout the month.
    If you travel less frequently, you can use our calculator to figure out the best ticket for you, or even simpler, use the payment apps (not Rav-Kav), and always get the best possible price!
    By using the apps you can travel as much as you want, while always paying the lowest available price. Have you traveled by bus for the third time today? You will only pay the price difference for a daily pass. Have you already made 20 trips in peripheral regions? You will not be charged for any further trips. We make sure you pay the lowest possible price according to your use.
  • Can I really travel anywhere in Israel for a single price with my Nationwide Unlimited Monthly Pass?
    Yes! As of 01.08.22 all you need to do is simply get on any bus (excluding Eilat), with your Nationwide Unlimited Monthly Pass; for train passengers it will cost a bit more, depending on the trains you use.
  • How will this improve my life?
    With the new scheme and the Nationwide Unlimited Monthly Pass you can travel anywhere in Israel for a single monthly rate.

    Before this change, we asked ourselves too many questions. How much will it cost to visit our family in Haifa? How much will it cost to travel to a neighboring town to see a movie? Do I need to reduce my travel so as not to exceed my budget? The “One Way” service revolution puts an end to such questions and calculations. It simply pays to travel more!

    For residents of select regions outside the large metropolitan areas, we give you the opportunity to travel farther, at the same price, and in addition we will open regional lines and enable unlimited travel (up to 40 km) at an even higher discount.
  • Weren't the prices supposed to go up?
    Yes, we were on the verge of a price increase, but following an agreement between the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Finance, it was decided that the “One Way” service revolution has succeeded in canceling the price rises thanks to the certainty it creates in public transport costs and payments.
  • Hold on, so how much will I pay from now on?
    It depends on your specific routine trips, but if you travel on buses in the central region, you will not pay more than NIS 225 per month. If you travel on local buses in peripheral regions, you will not pay more than NIS 99 per month. And of course, senior citizens and minors pay 50% off all rates. Anyhow, here on the top of the page you can get a precise calculation of your new travel costs.
  • Why is there a special regional unlimited monthly pass for peripheral regions?
    So that it would pay off to travel more on public transport throughout the country. We created the regional unlimited monthly pass which enables those living in more remote regions to travel farther and pay less. The discount for the regional unlimited monthly pass replaces dozens of historical discounts that were limited to short local trips and differed from one town to the next, sometimes even in adjacent towns. Now we can enjoy an “One Way” to travel even farther, in the Galilee and the Negev, in the Golan and the Arava, for the low price of only NIS 99 per month, and only NIS 49.5 for minors and senior citizens.
  • Why are you doing this? What was wrong with the situation until now?
    Before the change, our ease of travel on public transport had been limited, to say the least.

    Yes, you could board a bus in Haifa and get to Bat Yam. You could get on a bus in Modiin and go Netivot. But how much would your trip cost? This is a question that even public transport operators couldn't always answer. The inability to plan a trip, to understand how much things would cost and how it will affect my monthly expenditures on public transport, all these questions only limited our ability to truly rely on public transport consistently.

    If in the past, we would question whether to travel to visit our family in Haifa, or whether to see a movie in a nearby town with friends, the “One Way” service revolution puts an end to all these calculations and questions. From today onwards, the only thing any resident of the country should ask is where should we travel today? Without complex calculations and added costs.
  • Why is the train more expensive?
    Railway travel has always been more expensive than travel by bus, because trains are costlier to operate and also offer a faster and more comfortable travel experience. The new method still cannot compare bus and train prices. However, what it can do, and does, is lower the relative cost of both, so that people traveling by train will find the new method lowers the prices for them as well! In addition, nation-wide unlimited monthly passes that include train travel are also offered and are especially worthwhile!
  • Why did you cancel my accumulated value discount?
    The accumulated value discount was a temporary one, given over a decade ago so as to assimilate the Rav-Kav pass among passengers. To improve Israel’s public transport system and to enable significant discounts for those who regularly use public transport, we had to create uniformity between the cost of travel with Rav-Kav and the apps. Although on rare occasions this would slightly increase the cost of travel for certain passengers, it would open for them many more travel options through monthly passes and smart billing. In practice, anyone who regularly uses public transport should expect to see a reduction in their travel costs! The discount has been transferred to the unlimited monthly passes and to greater discounts for senior citizens, minors and disabled persons.
