Hong Kong to implement QR codes on MTR station

Hong Kong’s rail operator MTR Corporation has called upon tech companies to express their interest in tendering for the application of QR codes for travel in its rail network. In an official statement, the company explained that it plans to implement the QR code-based payments on existing Automatic Fare Collection (AFC) gates. Under the new system, passengers will be required to pre-generate a QR-based transit code to enter or exit paid areas of the MTR stations, where they will be required to present the QR code. Information collected from the code will be used for journey construction and fare calculation based on travel-first-and-pay-afterwards mechanism.
