Public Traffic Card Applied Nationwide
On November 14, Jinhua's public system became officially accessible to the national transportation connection system. Residents can now take the bus, subways, and light railways in 252 cities at prefecture level and above by the card, enjoying the convenience and benefit brought by the card.
In addition to the bus and railway system, residents can also use the card to take the ferry, rent bicycles, or take a taxi, and in some cities, residents can also enjoy a 40% discount on bus fare.
There are two types of traffic card systems, one led by Ministry of Communications and the other by Ministry of Housing Construction. Many cities have already joined these two systems. Since Jinhua joined the public traffic card system, it has connected with over 300 cities. In the future, Jinhua's public traffic card will integrate the functions of both systems so as to bring more convenience for urban residents.
Ministry of Communications is pushing forward the usage of such transportation methods, such as urban railway, bus, taxi, urban ferry, suburban railway, by one public traffic card. This will bring people convenience and create better transport experiences for the public. (By Xu Zhaohui, translated by Huang Dan, edited by Mariam Ayad)
