Mutual use/single use between IC cards

In the magnetic card, there are many cases where the same type of card has been introduced by each business operator in the area so that it can be shared by multiple business operators. There are examples of services that can be used in the IC card ticket service area. For example, card A can be used in the area of ​​card B, and card B can be used in the area of ​​card A mutually.Mutual useMost areas (Suica, ICOCA, TOICA areas, etc.) can be used in the area of ​​card B using card A, but cannot be used in the area of ​​card A using card B.Single useIn some cases (ICOCA → PASPY, etc.). From March 2013, 3,Kitaca-Suica-PASMO-TOICA-sense of-ICOCA-PiTaPa-SUGOCA-nimoca-HayakakenMutual use of 10 types of cards as passenger cards has started (Transportation IC card nationwide mutual use service).

Since these are alliances between businesses, there is a combination of whether or not mutual use (hereinafter, including single use) is possible. There are also combinations of whether or not they can be used as a ticket (transportation) and electronic money (see the figure). As for some of the services that can be received when using cards, other services that are mutually used may not be available.

In the case of railroads, many operators assume that all the stations to get on, routes along the way, and stations to get off are in the same service area (for IC card tickets) (if the above-mentioned mutual use is possible. However, it is often not possible to use them across service areas). In such a case, a normal ticket or the like will be purchased using cash or the like or an IC card ticket.

In addition, in the transportation IC card nationwide mutual use service,Electronic moneyRegarding the service, it is mutually used with 9 types of IC card tickets except PiTaPa. This is because the payment method of PiTaPa is postpay, and the mechanism of the IC card reader in the store is different. Therefore, ICOCA is being introduced to existing PiTaPa installation stores, and PiTaPa is being introduced to some ICOCA installation stores.[29].
