Smart Card for Bus Payment

Hi, any smart card I can use to pay for the bus & metro fees in Hokkaido region e.g. Donan Bus... etc? Please advise. Thanks



Hi there,

It depends on the travel company. For instance, the Sapporo Subway accepts IC cards, however the Donan bus requires a traditional ticket.
