Several new apps that allow Israelis to pay for public transportation with their smartphones are set to go into use throughout the country on June 25. First, though, they have to complete a successful pilot project and meet the requirements of the ministry of transportation. Of the three apps that won a ministry tender to operate the service, Rav-Pass, the platform developed by HopOn and PayBox, was the first to start the pilot. Starting Sunday, 400 test passengers began paying their public transportation fares using the app.
