White Paper - Transport in Asia Pacific 2011
"Transport in Asia Pacific" covers the use of contactless cards and devices in major Mass Transit projects in Asia Pacific. It aims at giving a clear vision over major projects in Asia Pacific countries and regions, showing differences and similarities between these deployments.
Major cities in Asia-Pacific region have been playing a role of market leader in such projects. China and Japan have successfully deployed millions of these cards: Octopus in Hong Kong, Yikatong in Shanghai, Suica in Japan, etc.
In changing people’s way of life, Octopus, in Hong Kong, is a reference of success in such projects in terms of market penetration, brand recognition, central administration and profitability.
