Transportation Minister Merav Michaeli participates in an event for her office’s launching of the “Zahav Kav” card that allows free public transportation throughout the country for those aged 75 and over.

“Israeli society owes a great debt to its elders, to the founding generation,” she says at the event at the Central Bus Station in Rishon Lezion.

“I am happy that today’s good news will help to significantly lower the cost of living we are all dealing with right now. From today, those over 75 can visit their grandkids for free, go shopping for free, go to the doctor for free. You can go to exhibitions, movies, plays — and travel there on public transportation — for free,” Michaeli adds.
