30-Day Public Transportation Pass Inaugurated


The Transportation Ministry inaugurated, Sunday, an unlimited-ride program valid for 30 days from purchase, that will allow the buyer to travel on the Israel Railways and bus lines in Be'er Sheva, Beit Shemesh, the Gush Dan area around Tel Aviv, Haifa and Modi'in as part of ongoing efforts to encourage the use of public transportation. Other areas will be added in the future.

The pass is being billed as a "Triple" since a passenger can take a bus to the train and continue on another bus for a certain price. There are "double" options involving one of each mode of transportation for a lower price.
