Xiamen transport authorities have now launched new travel cards which are safer and more convenient than the previous kind.
The new E-tong cards have several functions including online top up, loss reporting and SMS alerts. There are three different types: the wallet card which is essentially the same as the old ones; the account card, which you can top up online, report loss and receive SMS alerts; and the USB card, which is the same as the account card, but you can plug directly into your computer.
To trade in your old card for a new one, you can head to Wenzao BRT Station or the E-Tong Card service center in Software Park. More service centers will open across the city in the coming week.
