Residents will be able to take any public transportation means in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei with one transportation card in the future, the Beijing News reported.

This is a part of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei transportation integration project which covers the aviation, port, expressway and other fields.

A staff at the transportation authority in Tianjin said related departments in the three areas will conduct more cooperations to ensure the integration of expressway network, service and information. The integration of the transportation card is a part of the service integration project.

Transportation card was introduced in 1999 and now is widely used in 254 cities and towns nationwide.

However, the system has been separated among different cities and one card can only be used in one city.

The Ministry of Transportation said it planned to fulfill the integration of the card in large and medium-sized cities till 2016. A trial operation is expected to run in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei.
