For this purpose, you must go to one of the Ministry of Transport's "on the line" centers, the Egged Service Centers at Central Station or the Cfir Service Center near the Cinema City, with an ID card, and bring a valid printed study certificate, a student certificate for the relevant school year and if there is no student certificate, a printed payment certificate must be brought.
For Your Attention:
* Charging of periodic student contracts (semester and annual) that are also valid for the Light Train, is performed at stations on the line of the bus companies - Egged, Superbus and Kavim (according to the relevant areas) - only.
* Accordingly, the definition of an “Expanded Student” profile is also possible only at the aforementioned companies.
Student profile about to expire
The Light Train validation device provides alerts about multi-line (Rav-Kav) cards which profile is about to expire.
The alert is displayed so that when the card is validated, the orange (middle) light turns on in the validating device and a message is displayed regarding the expiration of the profile along with a different alert sound.
The alert is displayed one month before the profile expires.
Please note that as long as the profile is valid, it is possible to continue using contracts related to the same eligibility charged on the card. However, when the profile expires, these contracts can no longer be used.
The profile can be checked for validity in each of the automated machines at the Light Train stations.
