Recently, Qiao Lei, director of the Passenger Information Service Department of the Beijing Rail Transit Command Center in China, said to the outside world.
This year, Beijing Rail Transit launched the gate-swiping and non-cash ticketing services that support digital renminbi payment, as well as the Miaotong card service based on the NFC function.
After the passengers have opened the Yitongxing Pay·Miaotong card for free in the Yitongxing App. When taking the subway, you only need to put the top of the mobile phone close to the gate card reader and swipe it. There is no need to unlock the device during the whole journey, making it easier to brush the brakes and travel.
At the end of June, Beijing’s entire road network realized digital renminbi payment and ride-hailing. In August, it added support for digital renminbi ticket purchase, card purchase, ticket replacement and recharge services. At present, the average daily usage of digital RMB in Beijing rail transit is about 3,100 person-times.
In general, the average daily usage of Internet ticketing is about 3.1 million person-times, accounting for 54% of the usage.
Among them, the number of incoming QR code gates (including Yitongxing Pay) is about 2.91 million, accounting for 94% of Internet ticketing usage. Especially during the epidemic, Internet ticketing even more embodies the advantage of contactlessness.
