How to get your Rav-Kav Smart Card for the Jerusalem Light Rail and buses

Egged have started accepting the Rav-Kav card in Jerusalem as well as in the Gush Dan, Karmiel, the Sharon Region, Rehovot and the north.

The Rav-Kav card is an electronic smart ticket which allows passengers to pay for tickets in advance and to use different routes.  The Rav-Kav card which passengers need to register for is intended also to be used on the Jerusalem Light Rail and Egged buses will allow passengers to either pay for season tickets or pay for a number of rides in advance and to recharge the card before they travel.

An application form for the Rav-Kav card can be found here and costs 10 shekels in addition to the cost of further tickets and can be purchased from:

  1. My question is why do travelers still need to deal with the bus drivers at all if this card is so smart? Why should you still have the need to have cash on your person in order to recharge these cards? Why are there no recharge points at major malls and stations that allow you to recharge the card with a credit card and check the status of your card at leisure? This Rav Kav is a crock! It has so much potential and they are just getting it all wrong from the start (As they usually do in this country). If people are being forced to use these damn cards.... and people have been charged up to nis10 in the past just to recieve the card (Superbus), then there should be a proper infrastructure established for the proper use of the card and it's support system. I have not even touched on the subject of the card not truly being a multi card at all... I myself have lost money in the past because I used the card on another bus company who "supports" the card, but only deleted the credit I had with the other company.... If a person needs to draw cash (which they will need to do to buy a bus ticket, and recharge this adomination) they will need to go to an ATM, so why not have these Rav Kav ATM's too. The name should be Rav Krav. for all the good it's worth.
