Nagoya is to launch the Manaca IC card for use on the city area's trains, buses, taxis and subways.
Similar to the Pasmo and Suica cards in use in Tokyo, the contactless IC transit card will first be valid on Nagoya's subway, bus network, Aonami Line and local Meitetsu trains and buses.
The pre-paid card will also be valid on Meitetsu taxis some time after its release on the public transportation system in Nagoya city in February 2011.
