Hong Kong



Also comes in watch and cell phone form factors.

Quote:
The Octopus card is a rechargeable contactless stored value smart card used to transfer electronic payments in online or offline systems in Hong Kong. Launched in September 1997 to collect fares for the territory's mass transit system, the Octopus card system is the first contactless smart card system in the world and has since grown into a widely used payment system for virtually all public transport in Hong Kong.

The Octopus is also used for payment at convenience stores, supermarkets, fast-food restaurants, on-street parking meters, car parks, and other point-of-sale applications such as service stations and vending machines.

The Octopus card has been internationally recognised, winning the Chairman's Award of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance's 2006 Global IT Excellence Award for being the world's leading complex automatic fare collection and contactless smartcard payment system, and for its innovative use of technologies. According to Octopus Cards Limited, operator of the Octopus card system, there are more than 17 million cards in circulation, more than twice the population of Hong Kong. The cards are used by 95 percent of the population of Hong Kong aged 16 to 65, generating over 10 million daily transactions worth a total of about HK$29 billion (US$3.7 billion) a year.

You can use it in many places instead of cash - 7-11, bakeries, restaurants, etc.

It is too embarrassing to post the ticket booths.

Though this thread is maybe a little more specific, there are at least a couple other related threads:
Smart card systems: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=558010
Automatic Fare Collection Gates In Your City's Metro: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=252743

Anyways, Greater Tokyo uses two cards. Suica is JR's card and PASMO is the private railways' and subways' card. The distinction is somewhat meaningless now, since at least within Greater Tokyo, Suica can be used where PASMO is accepted and vice versa.

Kansai area also has two systems (ICOCA for JR West, PiTaPa for the private railways and subways) which are also interchangeable with each other within that area.

JR is slowly gravitating towards a nationwide card system. Suica is already interoperable with ICOCA and TOICA (JR Central), and will be interoperable with Kitaca (JR Hokkaidō) and Sugoca (JR Kyūshū), nimoca (Nishitetsu), and Hayakaken (Fukuoka City Subway) cards.

I really hope that there will be less cards in Japan in the future, since that is just insane how many different cards they have. It would also be great if they were to extend the coverage to outside the city areas (mainly JR cards).

Yes me too. Outside of city states like Hong Kong and/or Singapore Japan may become the first nation that will implement a nation wide universal money card which will no doubt be a great contribution to the Japanese society providing an alternative to coins but I donot see it coming in the next 5~10 years due to various corporate and legal barriers.

Currently I'm based in Melbourne I float between the 2 cities.
Admittedly; the Go-card works much better than the myki.

Will have to find pics.

No contactless smartcard is chipless; the IC (the chip) is embedded within the card itself; ie in the inner most layer.

Here is our contactless card system in Malaysia, the only one use nationally, from motorways, to public transports, paying parking fares and now, for commercial usage...

Touch n Go

Introduced in 1997, initially for motorway toll payments,now it is used for public transports and commercial transactions...



In 2008, a trial was done to test the use NFC (Near field communications) phones of Touch n Go readers

http://www.mobileworld.com.my/v2/ind...your_life.html



Touch n Go card reader on Rapid KL bus, if you wave the card for the first time on that day, the next subsequent rides on the same type of Rapid KL bus will be free (matching Rapid KL policy of unlimited one day bus ride ticket on same type of bus service class)



In Kuala Lumpur, rail lines that allow the use of Touch n Go are :

- Kelana Jaya line (Rapid KL)
- Ampang/Sri Petaling (Rapid KL)
- Sentul-Port Klang (KTM)
- Rawang-Seremban (KTM)

Some Malaysian identity cards has contactless card system chip embedded in it, thus you can see your own identity card as contactless card too!



Here are some commercial transactions using Touch n Go card...

- Dunkin Donuts



- Burger King
