Taipei, New Taipei City Introduces MRT/Bus Monthly Pass for Commuters

Taipei, New Taipei City Introduces MRT/Bus Monthly Pass for CommutersOn March 12, the mayors of Taipei City and New Taipei City jointly held a press conference to announce the launch of a monthly pass offering unlimited rides on MRT and buses in the two municipalities, as well as free use of the YouBike for the first 30 minutes.
During his address, Mayor Ko Wen-je expressed his gratitude for the joint efforts of the two municipalities to integrate the MRT network, buses, and YouBike services to encourage the use of public transport. He noted that the monthly pass is the first in a series of policies – with the next step being the rearrangement of bus routes.
The “All Pass Ticket”, priced at NT$ 1280, will officially launch on April 16 and is available for preorders starting March 13. Those with standard EasyCards, EasyCard credit cards, and EasyCard debit cards (with more than 60-day validity) can purchase and download the pass at the information counters or through the EasyCard Add Value Machines at MRT stations. Special discounted tickets do not apply.
Individuals can only purchase and use one pass at a time; the pass will be disabled if the first use (activation) does not take place within 30 days after purchase. Handling fee will be charged for refund and repurchase in this case.
The first use (activation) must be for MRT or bus ride – not YouBike. Holders of the pass must have YouBike membership registered with the monthly pass to enjoy the 30 minute free ride.
