 Beijing: Pilot Non-cash Payment Service in 55 Metro Stations

Beijing Rail Transit Non-cash Payment Coverage at the End of Month

It is expected that by the end of August, non-cash payment services will cover all lines and stations of the Beijing Rail Transit network.

It is understood that since the introduction of Internet ticketing service on August 20, 2017, Beijing Rail Transit has realized the functions of ticket collection, two-dimensional code ride, electronic scheduled ticket and electronic invoice step by step, providing convenient, fast and diversified ticketing services for passengers, and also alleviating the long queuing for tickets at stations. People gathering and other issues have played a positive role. Up to now, more than 17 million registered users of the Internet ticketing service platform, more than 600 million cumulative use of two-dimensional codes, more than 20 million online ticket collectors and more than 150,000 electronic scheduled tickets have been sold.

Main Sweep+ Sweeped Solves Mobile Phone Signal Instability

According to reports, the current domestic rail transit cities to achieve non-cash payment mainly adopt the passenger browser payment mode, that is, passengers use mobile phones to scan the two-dimensional code generated by ticketing equipment to complete payment. This mode requires high stability and reliability of mobile phone signal.

Considering that most of the stations of Beijing Rail Transit are located underground, the unstable communication network environment and weak signal may affect the passengersexperience, the Beijing Rail Transit Industry has put forward the scheme of main sweep+ swept to deal with the unstable mobile phone signal.

Among them, the main scan mode develops the software functions of the automatic ticket vending machine and semi-automatic ticket vending machine to realize passengerspayment by generating two-dimensional codes with mobile phone scanning equipment. When passengers buy tickets or cards at the station ticketing office or automatic vending machines, or pay for tickets and recharge business, they only need to open the WeChat or Alipay scan according to the prompts, and scan the two-dimensional code on the device screen to make payment. After the deduction is successful, the tickets will be completed.

At the same time, making full use of the characteristics of the network ticket collector in the station, which is based on the special network of rail transit and has its own scanning head, after upgrading its software, one-way ticket selling and recharging function is added on the basis of the original ticket collection function. The passenger mobile phone payment code is scanned by the network ticket collector to realize scanned payment, which can strongly support the mobile phone. Passengers use non-cash payment when the signal is bad.

Fifty-five stations, such as Xidan and Beijing South Railway Station, will be piloted first.

In the pilot stage, the transportation department takes the on-site ticket sales and total recharge as the main criteria, and chooses 50 stations with the largest demand for recharge, taking into account that all lines have non-cash payment pilot stations, so there are 55 stations as the first batch of non-cash payment pilot stations.

Reporters have noticed that among the 55 pre-pilot stations, there are not only railway-connected port stations, such as Beijing Station, Beijing West Station and Beijing South Station, but also popular tourist attraction stations, such as Tiananmen East, Xidan, Wangfujing, and other important hub stations, such as Xizhimen and Dongzhimen.
