Can Suica card be used on all 9 subways? 2010/1/20 16:53
Tokyo 23-ku
Hi,

I can't quite find a proper answer so i though i will ask it here:

I want to find out if the suica card can be used on the main subway lines by Toei and Tokyo Metro? Eg. hanzoman line? Can it also be used on buses and JR line?

Also can it be used in areas such as osaka, nara and kyoto for taking subways and buses?

Tokyo has 13 subway lines, not 9 lines
(Tokyo metro:9 lines, Toei:4 lines)

Suica card 2010/1/21 01:57
Suica card can be used on all subways by Toei and Tokyo metro.

In Kyoto and Osaka, it can be used on JR Line only.

Have a nice trip!

Thanks, sorry it meant to be 13 subways in total....made an error in the post title,

I have checked out that first link previously but didn't understand what 'greater tokyo' meant. I thought it meant outter, not the main area.

So i take it that the suica can be used on the subways and buses within the JR Yamanote line and also on the JR lines?

Yes 2010/1/21 13:29
Yes, that is correct. All JR and private trains, all subways, all buses in the Tokyo area, inside and outside the Yamanote line. It would be pretty inconvenient for commuters here if the Suica coverage suddenly ended inside the Yamanote line, where many people work!

Refunds 2010/6/17 01:41
*When the card is returned, the deposit of 500 yen is returned along with any remaining amount.


*There is a charge of 210 to return a Suica card, which is deducted from the total. If there is less than 210 yen on the card, then only that remaining amount is counted to the return charge.


------------------

So if I used my card until it was like 10 yen left on it, will I still get the 500 yen deposit refund back? lol

Yes, but you will only get the 500yen back. You do not get the 10yen back.

You get the 500yen deposit back NO MATTER how much money is on the card (or zero yen).
