Philou is correct.
Or simply use your WeChat and scan the QR Code image below:
You will be linked to the official mini-program called 乘车码 (chengchema).
It can pay fares for both MRT and buses for most cities in China (select cities top left corner). Not just for Kunming's transportation systems.
After authorizing payment synchronization to your WeChat Pay. Commuting subway or bus via smartphone becomes easy. No more fumbling for cash or coins while people push and grunt behind you.
Choose left tab "地铁" (ditie). QR Code will display, and refreshed periodically. Scan at turnstile.
At the top select the right tab labeled "公交" (gongjiao). QR Code will appear to be scanned (sensor located at bottom of machine) when embarking. At which point an automated voice will say "success" in Chinese "成功" (chengong).
"Pin to desktop" (top right corner option) for quick access.
I suggest GoKunming embed this QR Code image somewhere on this website for the convenience of commuting readers.
