Consisting of eight lines, Shenzhen subway provides a relatively fast and economical way of transferring in the city. It also reaches to the border between the city and Hong Kong at Luo Hu station and Fu Tian Kou An station, where passengers can transfer to Lo Wu station and Lok Ma Chau Station of Hong Kong's MTR East Rail Line for the Hong Kong travel. Moreover, Luo Bao Line also runs to the hot destination Window of the World and Baoan Airport. The announcers in the trains and stations broadcast in Mandarin, Cantonese, and English in turn.

Tickets Fare

Shenzhen metro employs a stage fare system. The more you travel, the more you pay. The starting fare is CNY2 for the first 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) and CNY1 is added for the next 2.5 miles (4 kilometers). After 7.5 miles (12 kilometers), it will be CNY1 every extra 4-mile (6-kilometer). After 15 miles (24 kilometers), it will charge CNY 1 per extra 5-mile (8-kilometer).

Ticket Type

Shenzhen subway adopts the following three common types of tickets:

 Single Journey Ticket (Token)
Single journey ticket is a green or yellow RFID plastic token, while the Transportation Card is a smart card similar to the Octopus Card used on the MTR rail lines in Hong Kong. It can be purchased at a vending machine. The machine has a high standard of the smoothness of the paper currency, so exchange coins from service staff if the bills cannot be identified. Each person can buy as many as 8 tickets at one time, so repeat the procedure for more tickets. Ticket vending machine only accepts CNY0.5 and CNY1 coins, CNY5 and CNY10 bank notes. The RFID token as the single journey ticket records the station entrance information after the purchase. To exit the station, one just needs to deposit the token in the slot at the station exit gate.

I am a US citizen (age 74) and my wife is PRC citizen (age 65)
We have homes in USA and SZX, spending 5 to 6 months annually each home. How can I obtain a senior resident bus pass ? Persons who have attained senior citizen age should be treated with courtesy no matter what their citizenship is. True? Or are only China old persons afforded the courtesy of age recognition? What documentation must I present and where should I submit?

I'm wondering is the Octopus Card (HK) could be use at Shenzhen
as replacement of the Transportation Card?

Or I need to purchase two of the said cards for separate location?

Best Regards,

No, the Hong Kong Octopus Card cannot be used in SZ. There is a special card "Hutong Card" that can be used in both cities. But little people use it because it is not convenient and has many problems. So you are advised to purchase Hong Kong Octopus Card and Shenzhen Tong separately.
Answered by kriss from CHINA | Feb. 24, 2019 06:35

NO-- a HONG KONG OCTAPUS card cannot be used in China-- and Vive versa! DIFFERENT MONEY!!! ONE is HK DOLLARS and the other is RMB
