China Unicron customers swipe mobile phones to buy tickets

China Unicorn customers can use their mobile phones as payment tools.

 

The program lets subscribers of China Unicorn in the Chinese mainland swipe their mobile phones to pay their bus, taxi and metro fares.

 

With a fare-settlement chip built into the mobiles, China Unicom users in Shanghai won't need cash or transport cards to travel and will receive transport bills tacked onto their phone bills.

 

The built-in chip provides the same benefits as transport cards and users will receive any relevant fare discounts.
