TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Taipei City Government announced on Saturday that the new NT$1,200 monthly public transport pass program will be available for sale from June 15, ahead of the originally planned start date of July 1. 

The new program aims to attract approximately 420,000 commuters during the first wave of sales.

 

According to the Department of Transportation, Taipei City Government, the early sale aims to prevent crowds of ticket purchases and refunds, as each card can only register one type of monthly pass. 

Commuters who wish to purchase the new pass need to terminate and get refunds for the NT$1,280 pass first.

The new monthly pass, an upgrade from the current NT$1,280 access for buses and MRT trains in Taipei and New Taipei City will offer unlimited rides on public transport, including MRT trains, buses, Taoyuan metro, and Taiwan Railway, throughout northern Taiwan. 
 

This new offer will also benefit commuters in Keelung and Taoyuan.

One commuter, who travels from Keelung to Taipei for work, told TVBS News: "I can already save money by commuting for work for more than ten days." By taking a train from Taoyuan to Taipei before transferring to MRT, a commuter can save approximately NT$1,600 per month.

The new program could receive a warm welcome from many commuters in northern Taiwan who are eagerly waiting for its launch.
