Like many metro systems in the world, fares on the Nanjing Subway are distance-based. Fares range from 2 yuan (approx USD $0.30) for journeys under 8 stations, to 5 yuan for longer journeys. There is a 5% discount for users of the Nanjing Public Utility IC Card.
Single journey tickets can be purchased from the ticket vending machine or at a ticket window. The ticket vending machine accepts both coins and bills (¥5 and ¥10).
Apart from one-way tickets, fares can also be paid with the Nanjing Public Utility IC Card, or Jinlintong (Chinese: 金陵通; pinyin: Jīnlíngtōng). It can be purchased for a refundable fee of 25 yuan (about 3.8 dollars) and refilled at ticket booths inside the metro stations as well as many collaborative convenience stores throughout the city. The card can also be used to pay for other means of public transportation, such as the city taxi and the city bus.
