Celebrating MRT 20th Anniversary with Commemorative Color Tokens

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Taipei’s MRT system, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) will be issuing a series of special commemorative coin tokens starting March 19.

According to the agency, the tokens will come in five colors – brown, red, green, orange, and blue. Each color will go on sale on Saturday for five consecutive weeks. The five colors each represent an existing MRT line, with a limited run of 2,000 token coins for each color.

The coins can be purchased from designated ticket vending machines inside the following stations: MRT Ximen Station, MRT Taipei Main Station, MRT Zhongshan Station, MRT Songjiang Nanjing Station, and MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station. There will be an activity poster on the designated vending machines to allow people to identify them. The respective color tokens serve as One-day Pass on the MRT network. Each commemorative token costs NT$150 and will be valid for an entire day after being activated at the gate. The token cannot be refunded.

The front of the commemorative token coin shows the words “metro Taipei,” and the backside contains the words “20th anniversary One-day Pass.”
