CityPass’s Web Site: Hebrew Only

Posted by Avital Pinnick on March 29, 2012

CitiPass site in Hebrew

[Note: This is part of a posting I published on March 28, 2012. I thought it would be better to put it in a separate posting.]

The CityPass site (screen capture above) is only in Hebrew. All the links work but I’m told that they do not answer their phones or faxes. One note about these screen captures: I created them yesterday but the situation was the same when I checked the site in December. The Jerusalem Light Rail started operating in August, 2011.

The English link is disabled:

The Arabic link points not to an Arabic translation of the Hebrew site but to a two-page PDF file with the same information as the Hebrew posters in Jerusalem Light Rail stops.

If the PDF exists, why aren’t these posters displayed at train stops, since Arabic is one of Israel’s official languages? That’s a very good question. There is no option for Russian, let alone Amharic.
