Mina-san, Train tickets. Good or Bad?

there was some non-sense in the forum that pasmo and suica were different. but they can do the same things now! :kokoro:

I'm living in Yokohama, and use the PASMO as a commuter pass, and as e-cash. It works on the buses, and some vending machines. PASMO and Suica both work on each other's system so you don't have to have two cards when you want to travel. The PASMO also has a limit of 20,000円.


Here's a hint for those wishing to save some money if you live here: the commuter pass is actually an unlimited use pass for the stations on your route. I go to Yokohama station 7 days/week, so it's cheaper for me to get a pass that has that station on the way.

Kyle, I know exactly what you're talking about. I feel the same. Who would've thought a jingle like that would bring back so many good memories!

I don't know about anyone else, but the little JR jingle that you hear in the background is very 懐かしい for me. So many memories came flooding back when I heard it. Anyone else know what I'm talking about?

Actually, Suica (and/or Pasmo) works on many non-JR buses and taxis as well as on private train lines and subways. It also is available in many convenience stores and I even saw the card reader in a Starbucks.

I found a video of how Suica works:

A couple suica commercials:

In Washington DC, we have the MetroPass which is even more convenient than Suica. MetroPass is the same thing, a pre-paid card, but it will pay for parking at Metro stations, the Metro train, and several county buses. It would be like Suica paying for non JR buses as well. My bus charges less money if I use the MetroPass than if I used cash. They used to be a ticket only system, but upgraded late last year. ものすごく便利です。


The EZ-Pass that Peter-san mentioned works for all toll stations from New York to Florida. That's a lot of toll booths, and it was very convenient when my wife and I went from Virginia to New York for a trip.
