In the Ministry of Transport’s latest initiative to make inter-city traveling easier, the China T-Union transport card will aim to connect 260 at or above prefecture-level cities nationwide before 2020. This announcement was made on June 11 at a press conference held by the ministry in Jiangsu province.

Launched at the end of 2015 in Beijing and neighboring Tianjin and Hebei, the China T-Union card system has already been installed in 245 cities to date.

Usable on all public transport systems including ferries, taxis, buses, shared bikes and subways, this push by the Ministry of Transport is just one of 12 goals aimed at bridging the gap between urban and rural areas, ultimately making travelers’ lives easier.

Those who currently have local transport cards are eligible to upgrade to the new T-Union card.
