Hangzhou Plans to Issue the “Octopus Card” on 1st, October, 2013 2018-05-31


Hangzhou, China - “Travelling through the whole city, transferring between different means of transport, one card is all one needs". This is not just a dream, but a dream about to come true. Yesterday, Hangzhou Citizen Center announced that it planned to issue the Hangzhou Tong•General Card (kind of like Octopus Card in Hong Kong) on 1st, October, 2013. The card can be used to pay for rides on subways, buses, taxis, water buses and public bicycles, parking, and small purchases in appointed shops.


There are different types of "Hangzhou Tong" Card: general card, transportation card, student card, senior citizen card and so on. And the general card will make its first appearance on 1st October.

The general card is mainly green with the representative elements of Hangzhou (the West Lake, Three Pools Mirroring the Moon, and boats) printed on it. What's also worth noticing is that on its bottom right corner, there are several small patterns. These patterns represent subway, public bus, taxi, public bicycle, water bus and shopping respectively, and reveal the functions of the card clearly.


The card mainly offers two services: electronic purse and monthly card. The electronic purse service can cover various payments in daily life. While, monthly card service enables cardholders to enjoy discounts on the fare.

The application of the card is available in 240 service stations around downtown Hangzhou, and no ID Card is required. Before the card can be used, money needs to be deposited into it in advance. The maximum amount is 1,000 Yuan and minimum is 50 Yuan. There are still some questions about the deposit and fee which are sure to be answered before 1st October.
