Rav-Kav travel card is leaving the station, replaced by apps, bracelets



The Rav-Kav transportation card will be losing its relevance in April, as new applications will begin allowing public transportation users to pay with their phone instead. While the card will still work, the apps will most likely be worth the switch, according to The Marker.

The current system allows users to charge their Rav-Kav with either a stored value or a contract. The stored value is used like a debit card on buses and trains, with each trip withdrawing the price of a ticket from the stored value. Contracts come in a variety of forms and are based on time and area, with options for monthly, weekly and daily contracts covering trains and buses in cities, regions or the entire country.
