The method for using and adding money to the transportation card is the same as before, where purchasing, reloading and refunding can be done at any subway station in metropolitan areas or at convenience stores.

In addition, the current standard issue pre-paid T-money Card will also be available to use nationwide starting in December of 2014 through 2017.
