Shanghai public transport card

Standard

The Shanghai public transportation card (SPTC) or jiaotong yikatong is a contactless card, utilizing RFID technology, which can be used to access many forms of public transport and related services in and around the Shanghai, China area.

The SPTC is a form of rechargeable cash card, and allows access to, among other things in Shanghai:
Buses and trolleybuses、Metros、Ferries、Taxis、Tourist centers、Car parks、Fuel stations、Expressways、Airport maglev、Auto repair service.
As of June 2006, the card has been interchangeable with the Wuxi Tai-Lake Transportation Card, and can also be used in Suzhou.

There are five types of SPTCs:Standard、Memorial、Mini、Personalized、Watch.Only the Standard card has a refundable deposit (30 RMB), 20 after November 2007); other cards cannot be refunded, but have a lower deposit (20 RMB) and are resaleable through other means. Cards can be reloaded in multiples of 10 RMB, at selected convenience stores, banks throughout Shanghai and service counters at all metro stations, or in multiples of 50 RMB in many local Metro stations (by machine; this is only possible for standard-sized cards with the exception of some machines in line 8 stations that are capable of taking most sizes). Should a cardholder attempt to board a bus, ferry or the metro without sufficient funds in their card, an overdraft will be allowed if the balance (prior to the overdraft) is non-negative and the fare is less than 10 RMB.
Personalized cards are also available upon request at the Transportation Card Service Center on West Nanjing Road for a fee of 100 yuan (which includes 10 yuan credit).
