Have you lately wondered why suddenly there are hanging strange looking devices in many local Egged buses?
We all know such ticket devices from the tram where people get on and hold their RAV KAV card in front of it in order to pay for their ride. Now the Egged buses are doing the same: People are able to enter the buses through all doors and the “strange” devices are actually for your Rav Kav card. The same procedure as on the tram.
All kinds of posters and big signs outside the bus inform you that this particular bus enables you to get on wherever you want. However, the new systems hasn’t been introduced on all local buses yet.
People who have to buy a ticket and do not own a Rav Kav still enter the bus at the front door (where the driver sits).
