Compared to taxis and bicycles, the volume of bus and subway is huge. According to industry estimates, the daily transaction volume of bus and subway reaches 300 million. According to Su Haowei, deputy general manager of Guangzhou's Yangchengtong, mobile payment access to public transportation is not just a solution to the problem of driving, but it is also activating the bus industry.
According to Liu Xiaojie, general manager of Ant Financial Services, not only is it the first-tier city in the north of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hangzhou, it is also connected to mobile payment in many small and medium-sized cities. In the coming year, this area will be expanded to more than 100 cities. In addition to large and medium-sized cities, many cities on the 3rd, 4th, and lower levels will implement the scan code to take public transit.
Liu Xiaojie believes that the practice in the field of travel proves that to help all industries under the line achieve Internet+, we must rely on the power of our eco-partners to achieve win-win co-governance. He said that in addition to basic payments and other services, Alipay is working with eco-partners and other Alibaba.com brothers to explore value-added services such as “real-time bus” and “subway WIFI”. This process will help the public transport industry from “connecting” to “convergence,” achieving service and business model upgrades.access:
