A subway passenger uses a QR code to pay ticket fees on an app developed in Shanghai at a subway station in Beijing, capital of China, Dec. 2, 2020. China's metropolises of Beijing and Shanghai have launched a service that enables metro passengers to use the same QR code to pay ticket fees in both cities. It is common in China for subway passengers to use a QR code for payments, which is usually scanned at the ticket gates. However, the codes are often on different apps developed in different cities and cannot be used interchangeably. The service, effective on Tuesday, allows the QR code on the respective apps in Beijing and Shanghai to be accepted for payments in the subway system of both cities. (Xinhua/Zhang Chenlin)
