Less than a year after the previous transport minister Merav Michaeli launched a price reform in public transport, today at noon the new transport minister Miri Regev will launch her own reform.

Regev's reform is mainly supposed to bring back the discounts that were customary in ultra-Orthodox cities and Michali canceled as part of the comparison of public transportation prices throughout the country, along with advancing the age of free public transportation for older citizens, probably from age 67 instead of 75 now.

As in the actual cancellation of the public transportation route on road no. One initiated by Michaeli, Regev continues with moves designed to erase the moves of her predecessor in the office - even if they are supported by the professional ranks in the office and outside.

According to the data of the National Public Transportation Authority, the price of traveling on public transportation is only the fourth item in the ranking of the issues that bother bus and train users, and are marked as factors that prevent Israelis from leaving their private cars at home in the morning, and going to work on public transportation. The Israelis' preference for private cars is the cause of the prolonged traffic congestion , and wasting daily time in traffic jams.

According to a national survey conducted by the Authority, the reliability of the service is more important to passengers, that is, adherence to the schedule and accuracy in travel times. Shorter travel times were listed in second place, two items that emphasize the need for preferential routes for public transportation. In the third place, they indicated suitable routes for their needs, and in fourth place a more pleasant ride - new and clean buses, stations with shading, and more.

In recent years, the Ministry of Transportation, through the Authority, has improved the supervision, control and enforcement of public transportation activities to ensure that they meet the schedule, and to bring real-time information to passengers, including placing more than 2,000 real-time signs at stations. Any investment in reducing fares will come at the expense of budgets for activities such, for the improvement of the stations and the construction of tunnels.
