Here you'll learn words and phrases that will be useful when taking the subway in China. Soon you'll be able to ask how to get to a particular subway station, and how to find subway line you need. When using the subway, you'll also need to understand what the train announcer might say to ensure you get off at the correct stop.
The fare prices for subways in China tend to be heavily subsidized. This is in order to promote public transport and ease the traffic problems caused by increased car ownership in China. Integrated ticking is a feature of most systems, with Hong Kong's Octopus card being the best example. It works on the MTR, buses, ferries, trams, as well as car parks, vending machines and even convenience stores.
