Metro from Chongqing West
Hi, I am trying to understand if I can catch a metro train from Chongqing West to the City. The following is mentioned above:
"Arrival by metro: line 5 and ring line
The phase two of metro line 5 is under construction and will open in the near future by when West Station can be easily reached by subway. The metro line 5 is on -2F."
Does this mean the metro connection to/from Chongqing West is still being constructed or that it is now available?
Thanks for your help :)

Is it possible to buy a public transportation card in the Chongqing West railway station?
The one that can be refilled and is good for both the bus and the metro. How much does it cost?

Thanks for help.

There seems no office for the transportation card at West Station. You may found a metro station for the card. The cost is CNY25 to buy the card. To refund it, however, you can only do it at some appointed office. So if you will only stay a few days in Chongqing, maybe it is easier to buy ticket for each bus or metro. If you will stay a long time there, this card may useful.
