all electric

April 28th, 2008

So the Beijing subway is going all electric, getting rid of the old paper tickets. Finally. Yeah, alright, it’s been bloody obvious for a while, what with the necessary equipment being installed in the stations. But this article by 新京报/The Beijing News’ Zuo Lin suggests the system is just about all ready to go and will be open for business on May 17.

Anyway, I don’t really want to translate it, or even read the whole thing, because there’s a big, huge, long post involving a lot of translation that I started on Saturday, which was interrupted by the HSK, and for which I’m trying to find the energy to finish.
