Transit QR Code Mode

Transit QRC can be generated on mobile applications. Users can present the code and get scanned by the transit terminal to take a trip. Transit QRC can be generated and validated offline, with no sensitive or financial data involved, which brings great convenience and safety to users.



Merchant side: Acquirers should already have the QRC acquiring license and support MPM QRC business.

APP side: App providers should be TPSPs of UnionPay. If the provider is an issuer, it should be a UnionPay member and already support MPM QRC business.


Public transit systems, such as buses, metros, ferries, BRT, etc.
