The all-in-one-card launched by the Sanya government is expected to be widely used around this year's May Day holiday. By then, the cardholders will be able to use the card to pay their bus fares, electricity and gas bills, hotel expenses and scenic spot tickets.
The card will be able to serve these functions at more than 30 cities in China.
The all-in-one-card, which caters both for the residents' and tourists alike, will be gradually promoted across the city.
According to the plan, residents in Sanya are expected to enjoy the benefits of the all-in-one-card card during its two-month trial operation before the spring festival.
To date, Sanya has established partnerships with 8 cities around the Yangtze River Delta region and more than 30 cities are expected to join in this year, which is quite convenient for tourists who can use the card issued by Sanya to pay bus fares in their cities. Besides, these kinds of cards of other cities will be used in Sanya by the end of this year.
Two types of cards are provided including the real-name card and non-registered card, the cardholders of the real-name cards enjoying larger discounts.
