Previously Apple had the Beijing Card and Shanghai Transit cards with reports towards the end of 2019 that Apple was going to expand on it. Those reports also noted at Apple adding Lingnan Pass, that has not happened today.

The addition of these two brand new cards opens the doors to 200+ new cities now compatible with the Apple Transit cards in China. This thanks to both being T-Union cards which is a type of Chinese contactless transport card. T-Union is accepted across mainland China ultimately expanding the Apple Pay service to the whole country. Apple has also updated its Apple Pay in China page to reflect the new additions.

Starting Wednesday users in China can add these brand new cards to their Apple Wallet app.
