About:Beijing Transportation Smart Card

Thanks for Qi's replied. If I buy a ordinary card ( is the same as regular card?), can I buy it in Airport and use it for express train from airport to downtown? Any minimum for loading the amount of money? Does there have exchange if I have only $100? Will deduct the exact fare from the card each time? Any discount? Form above it seems very difficult to get back the deposit CNY $20, any tips?Can I use it for the tourist buses with 9?
Where can I find the chinese version of the subway map?
Normally how long should we wait for a train in subway espectially in Line two?and the bus 919?Sorry for the long list of question.

Yes, it is regular smart card. You can buy in the airport and use it for express train. For the first time, you should pay at least 40 yuan, 20 yuan for returnable deposit and 20 yuan for you to use. If you want to use it pay the express train which costs 25 yuan, you need to prepay more money in the card. For every single time, you can put 10 yuan, 20 yuan, 30 yuan or more you want into it. Will deduct the exact fare from the card. You should make sure there are monry left in card. There are discounts on cuty bus, 60percent off. No discount on subway and express train. Beijing subway is cheap, only 2 yuan without limit on how many transfers you make within the subway stations. Tourist bus with 9 including 919 support payment by smart card. Here is the Chinese subway map:
Wait Line 2 for every 3 minutes. 919 bus is easy to catch too. It has many branch lines.
