Yes, taxis are an option. If you have the chance, ask the taxi driver before getting in the car if they have disinfected the vehicle and aired it out between passengers. Remind the driver to disinfect and air out the car after your ride.

In order to protect the health of the bus drivers and limit the spread of the virus, people must enter a regional public transportation from the middle or from the back door (if there is a door at the back). Passengers do not need to contact the bus driver, as they do not need to buy a ticket also in these counties where the transport has not been free of charge before.

All Elron travel attendants regularly disinfect their hands to avoid transmission of the virus.

In order to avoid direct contact with the staff, we recommend buying your ticket online in advance from the Elron sales environment. You can also purchase a ticket aboard the train from the ticket machine using the Elron travel card.

If possible, the 2-by-2 rule must be observed also on board the train.
