Automatic fare collection (AFC) system is widely used in urban rails and high-speed railways.
By the end of 2013, 19 Chinese cities had put 87 urban rail lines into operation with the operating mileage of 2,539 km, of which 56 lines, 1,788 km (70.42%) and 1,017 operating stations were contributed by top six cities - Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Chongqing and Tianjin. In 2014, it is expected that 13 Chinese cities will launch new rail lines, with 403.5 km and 270 stations to be added.
China had opened 37 high-speed railways with the total operating mileage of 11,152 km as of the end of 2013. In 2014-2015, China will fulfill the construction of 12 new high-speed railways with the operating mileage of 8,887 km. The booming high-speed railways will boost the railway passenger transportation capacity and offer market opportunities for AFC system.

Huahong Jitong is the only system provider focusing on AFC system in China.
