Using the travel ticket


  • Passage through the control gates of the station is possible only with a valid travel ticket.

  • Temporarily exiting the station is not allowed.

  • Exiting at an intermediate station will be considered as completing your journey in full. Passengers are required to pass through the control gates only at the station of origin and destination stipulated on the travel ticket. Holders of Flexible 30 and Flexible 7 tickets are allowed to enter and exit without limitation at the intermediate stations as well.

  • ​Please have your travel ticket ready before boarding the train and make sure you have the correct ticket for your journey. Israel Railways carries out strict enforcement of travel ticket payments, and our enforcement teams are authorized to carry out ticket control and collect the travel fee plus a penalty charge of double the travel fee, from passengers who do not hold a valid travel ticket​.​
