Sanya all-in-one-card to be available in over 30 cities throughout China
The Sanya Government has installed 30 pos machines on buses No.1, No.4 and No.32 to conduct internal testing of the city’s new all-in-one-cards in February, and the Sanya all-in-one-cards are to be available in over 30 cities around China in 2013.
As China's only tropical seaside city, Sanya is launching the all-in-one-card for the convenience of the growing number of tourists and residents, and cardholders will be able to use the card to pay their bus fares, electricity and gas bills, hotel bills and buy scenic spot tickets.
The all-in-one-card has been rolled out in more than 100 cities in China, covering public transport, scenic spots, supermarkets and restaurants.
Famously, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Nanjing have established systems to accept each other's all-in-one-cards, which enable cardholders to use their cards in any of the three cities. More than 20 other cities including Sanya, Tianjin, Hangzhou and Jinan are expected to join the list of connected-card cities this year.
In addition, the government will establish a Public Service Management Information Platform to record the consumption habits of cardholders.
