Taoyuan
City Mayor Cheng
Wen-tsan said the tap-and-go system for the rapid
transit (MRT) line linking metropolitan Taipei and Taoyuan international
airport would bring more friendliness and convenience to both domestic and
international travelers.

 

Introduction of the contactless payment was a further evidence of Taoyuan
Metro’s efforts applying advanced technologies to better serve passengers since
the airport metro line was opened two years ago, Mayor Cheng said.

The mayor hoped the contactless payment would be expanded to all MRT
lines in Taipei and other public transportation systems to benefit more riders.

 

Taoyuan Metro would continue its objectives of offering “safety, friendliness,
intelligence and efficiency” to travelers as the airport MTR enters its third
year of service, he added.

Taoyuan Metro Chairman Liu Kun-I ensured the public that more quality service line would be offered.

From January 16, the speed payment will open to passengers holding Visa,
Master, and Union Pay cards, and those carrying JCB cards would enjoy the benefit
from June, Liu said.  All turnstiles at
the 21 metro stations on the airport line would soon be supported by intelligent
devices to accept the payments.

would greatly reduce the tedious ticket purchase process and reduce
crowdedness, allowing visitors to enjoy an easy journey “forward to the world”.
