TRTC Holds Lantern Festival Campaign

With the start of the 2016 Taipei International Lantern Festival at the Expo Park this weekend, the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) will also be holding its own lantern festival celebration campaign!
For passengers taking the MRT train, simply look for the poster with the message “Take the MRT and Guess the Lantern Riddle” (搭捷運猜燈謎) to participate. Look for the QR code on the poster and scan it to log into the activity website. Participants with UUPON membership who answer three riddles correctly will earn 20 UUPON points.
Furthermore, iPass users with Ponta membership linked to their cards will receive 2 Ponta points for every trip they make on the MRT. The campaign also offers 10 Ponta points to card holders for each time they enter/exit MRT Yuanshan Station, with lottery chance for winning 10,000 Ponta points (3 winners total).
Please refer to the website of UUPON and Ponta for further information on the respective campaigns.
In light of increased passenger volume during the lantern festival period, TRTC also announced that bicycles will be banned from boarding/disembarking trains at MRT Yuanshan Station after 3 PM on the following weekend/holiday dates: Feb. 20, 21, 27, 28, and 29.
Between February 20 and 29, YouBike rental stations at MRT Yuanshan Station Exit 2 and Taipei Fine Arts Museum will be suspended during the following hours: 7 PM through 10 PM weekdays, and 5 PM through midnight on weekends/holidays.
