Shanghai Metro, in partnership with US-based Mastercard, has launched a service that allows Mastercard to be linked to its official application (app), Metro Metropolitan City. This will allow the use of foreign credit cards for boarding the Shanghai metro. A QR code will be generated after linking Mastercard with the app, which will allow foreigners to pass through ticket gates. Shanghai is the first city in China to link international credit cards with urban public transport.
