Anthony: We are patiently waiting at the bus station.

Echo: 公交卡。
Anthony: You just swipe it, it deducts money from your account, it’s really, really easy.

Both are correct. However zuo4r is only for the noun, and it is the substitution of 座位 or 坐位 :)

echo 说给老年人让座儿 or is it 坐儿 I'm pretty sure its the first one...if so this is a noun right?? can you say zuor in every context??? can you use it as a verb and noun, and can both zuo's be said as zuor? or only one, and finally...is this a substitution dor zuo wei?????

I don't like it that we can't download this video, like to put it on the Ipod for some real portability...!

Beijing subway system's the best. 2 kuai around the whole city. You can sit in the train for a day and it still costs you only 2 kuai.
