    > The APEC Transport Card is a payment card used for any kind of public transportation within APEC member countries. The main object is to provide convenience for local people as well as foreign tourists, which can contribute to promote the tourism industry raising ICT level in the region.

The service is provided in collaboration with Korea T-money. All these cross-border transport payments are based on NFC.
