People in Beijing can now use QR codes as tickets across all subway lines, after 6 million passengers tried it during a trial over 20 days.

They need to download an app called Ruubypay and connect it with either their bank account, Alipay, or JD Finance account. A QR code will be generated as you open the app, and by putting your phone near the QR code reader, it will let you pass through almost as fast as using an actual ticket.

It could save a lot of time for passengers who forget to bring a metro card and have to queue up to buy a ticket.

Beijing's subway also says they’ll start trial of payment by facial recognition later this year.
