Public transportation discounts to expand Tuesday

This coming Tuesday, some 2.5 million travelers will benefit from expanded public transportation discounts, the Transportation Ministry announced on Sunday.

Transportation Minister Israel Katz signed an order on Sunday indicating that as of December 1, many more members of the population will be able to travel on buses and trains either free of charge, or with ticket reductions of up to 50 percent. Chief among those to profit from the new discounts will be about 2 million children ages 5 to 18, who will receive 50% reductions on all forms of public transportation – after only receiving such concessions on urban and regional travel before, the ministry said.
