Before using UnionPay card, you need to open the small amount password free payment function of UnionPay card in advance, and the balance in the card should not be less than the maximum fare of the line you take.
For the passengers who take a single ticket, the fee will be charged directly; for the bus lines implementing the segmented pricing, the corresponding balance in the UnionPay card will be temporarily frozen after getting on the bus and swiping the card successfully; due to different bank policies, the frozen amount of some UnionPay cards will be 115% of the corresponding fee because of different policies of different banks; after getting off the bus and swiping the card successfully, the amount of fees that have been frozen will be automatically returned.
