Israel Today stops railway delivery

No distribution agreement has been reached between Hedria Train Media, the advertising franchise owner at Israel Railways and free daily Israel Today.

After three year the paper will no longer be handed out at railway station exits. As also other papers were distributed in that area, Israel Today wanted a discount on the tender price.

The franchise will go to paid daily Yediot Ahronot. According to Globes, Yediot Ahronot will promote its own papers, including copies of business supplement Calcalist and probably a new title in the future.

Israel Railways plans to expand the radius of enforcement against the distribution of newspapers in the environs of train stations.
