3-day, unlimited Metro passes coming

THREE-DAY passes for unlimited use on the subway will be available starting tomorrow, officials said yesterday.

The new 45 yuan (US$7.14) pass allows the holder to travel on all 11 Metro lines, said Shanghai Shentong Metro Group, the subway operator. The new passes will be sold at all 200-plus Metro stations.

Shentong said the passes would benefit "short-term visitors who are in Shanghai for business or leisure."

Currently, an 18 yuan one-day pass is available for visitors.

Metro passengers said they welcome the tickets, adding they'd like to see more diversified tickets that would be good for weekly or monthly use. But some complained that the price is too high.

Currently, subway passengers use either single trip tickets or the public transport card, which is also accepted for taxi, bus and ferry services but does not offer a discount. The city's Metro fares are on a sliding scale, with a ceiling of 10 yuan and a minimum of 3 yuan (except for Line 5).
