GUIYANG, July 1 (Xinhua) -- Subway and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems now support payment by face scanning in Guiyang, capital of southwest China's Guizhou Province.

To access the service, citizens need to download and register on a mobile application. After ID verification and facial recognition on self-registration terminals, citizens can take subway or BRTs simply by having their faces scanned.

According to the city's government, this service is an important trial in the integrated development of the internet, artificial intelligence, transportation, city management, and market transactions. Enditem
