An Israeli startup HopOn  have created a “smart mobile payment and ticketing platform for the public transport, taking the simplification of transport ticketing to a new level,” according to their site.

According to Times of Israel, David Mezuman, HopOn’s CEO states: “We use ultrasonic sound to validate passenger fares with payments made by the user’s credit card, registered to the app during the signup process,” said Mezuman, who built the app with partner Ofer Sinai. “The validation is done with a small device that we provide, which is placed at the entrance of the bus, and deducts payment from the credit card as a passenger boards. The driver does nothing except look at the indicator to ensure that the passenger has paid, and the passenger does nothing except walk on the bus.

Within a few months we expect to be certified for use on all Dan company buses in the Tel Aviv area,” said Mezuman. “We have been working to implement this with the bus companies in Israel for the past year and a half. The bus business is slow-moving, and there is a lot of regulation involved, so it’s a gradual process.

Mezuman has also been speaking to bus and train companies abroad and expects to install the system in a transportation company in Monaco soon. “We’ve put a lot of work into this, and we believe it will pay off for passengers and companies,” Mezuman said. “Everyone who has tried HopOn loves it.
