How-to Guide: Using WeChat to Ride the Shenzhen Metro


These machines were put in place last year to allow passengers to buy tickets using WeChat, QQ Wallet and Alipay. These can be very convenient when you need to buy a ticket and don't have coins or 5 RMB notes. If you'd like to learn how to buy tickets using these machines, check out this detailed article written by Bailey Hu of That's Shenzhen.


The ITVMs will be offline for maintenance starting today (November 19th) and are expected to be back online by 11am November 20th.


Passengers buying tickets using cash or traveling using their pre-paid Shenzhen Metro cards will not be affected.
