MRT-HSR-Double Decker Combo Pack Available June 1
Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) has teamed up with Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC) to offer a new “MRT-HSR-Double Decker Joint Ticket” combo package!
The ticket will be available between June 1, 2017 and December 31, 2018.
Each combo package includes the following items: a roundtrip ticket on the HSR (from HSR Taipei Railway Station to either HSR Taoyuan Station or any HSR stations further south); MRT 48-hour Pass, and a voucher which could be exchanged for a double-decker day pass. Effectively, the combo pack ticket offers roughly a 25-percent discount on the HSR round trip tickets and a 37-percent discount on MRT-double decker tickets.
For example, an individual starting his visit at HSR Zuoying Station will have to spend NT$3960 in total to purchase each ticket separately. On the other hand, buying the combo package will cost NT$2,850, which is a saving of NT$1,110!
The combo pack can be purchased at ibon kiosks at 7-11 convenience stores. Simply follow the instructions at the kiosk and complete the purchase process. After paying at the counter, your will receive a code for collecting your HSR ticket and proof of purchase for MRT/double decker ticket. The HSR ticket can be exchanged via ibon. The proof of purchase can be used at the information desk at MRT Taipei Main Station, MRT Nangang Station, or MRT Banqiao Station, and 11 other MRT stations to exchange for the 48-hour pass and 1-day double decker pass.
