The public need to go through real-name registration for taking public transportation or taxis in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province, authorities said Sunday.
The requirement is part of a work plan issued by the bureau of transportation. It applies to buses, ferries, trams, subways and taxis that have resumed operations, the bureau said.
The public can use Alipay or WeChat for online identification before taking public transportation or taxis. Those who fail to authenticate themselves will be barred from taking these vehicles.
Middle and primary school students, senior citizens and disabled people must show their IDs when they take taxis. They must use their student cards, senior cards or cards for the disabled to board public transportation. IDs are needed if they fail to bring these cards.
Passengers can scan barcodes on these vehicles to track their transportation records.
The work plan aims to guarantee the safety of the public, the bureau said.
