Hong Kong has an integrated smart card fare collection system for its public transport network. The convenience of the electronic payment system using a single contactless smart card on major modes of public transport benefits people from all walks of life. Each smart card has a built-in microchip containing an electronic purse and other applications that can accurately record cardholders' transaction details. Users simply hold their smart card over a reader and the transaction amount will be deducted from the card automatically. Residents can travel around the city and pay for various kinds of transport with just one smart card. There is no longer a need to carry coins!
