Buses in Taipei are numerous and bus routes are well-planned. Once you get a hang of it, buses are a great way to get around the city. Buses take EasyCard or cash. Prices are calculated by distance. Tickets come in three price levels: One-segment, Two-segment and Three segment.
Coin: One-segment ticket, regular NT$15; Two-segment ticket, regular NT$30; Three-segment, NT$45. Most passengers will only need a One-segment ticket. The bus driver will notify you if you need to pay more for a Two or Three-segment ticket. Note: Be sure to have the exact ticket amount as buses will not give change.
EasyCard: Gently sweep card over the sensor area marked by the EasyCard logo (or insert token into the slot) on the ticket reader. The beep you hear indicates that credit corresponding to the ticket amount has been deducted from your card.
Taking the bus
Passengers can get on and off a bus from the front or back door. Please check to see if passengers must pay before or after the bus ride.
