MRT to Accept Multiple Stored-value Cards

MRT to Accept Multiple Stored-value Cards

Passengers will now have more choices regarding the stored-value card they can use at the store-value ticket vending machines and fare gates inside MRT stations!

Starting July 1, all the aforementioned facilities across 117 MRT stations will accept both EasyCard and iPASS. Following compatibility tests conducted in June, a total of 1,337 fare gates and 464 store-value ticket vending machines have been confirmed to work with the new IC card.

Furthermore, all sensors at the fare gates will now use the “IC CARD” logo instead of the former logo to inform passengers about the new choices of stored-value cards for paying fares.

With the renewal of the electronic stored-value card service contract for the MRT system, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation announced that the metro system will take EasyCard and iPass starting July 1, as well as “icash” and “happycash” in the foreseeable future.

For more information, please call the TRTC 24-hour hotline (TEL:02-218-12345) or the 1999 Citizens Hotline.
