Just tap the Automatic Fare Collection Gate or ticket checker with your card to pay for the ticket fair. It can be used on public transportation such as Taiwan’s MRT system, Taiwan Railways, buses, shuttle buses and public bicycles.
More than 20,000 partner stores in Taiwan accept iPASS card payment. Whether you want to have a coffee from a convenience store or a cup of tea in a nice holiday afternoon, you can use it for payment.

If you are shopping at a partner store and are asked by the clerk if you want to print out the receipt, you may choose to save it on iPASS card. The store will then transmit the digital receipt to the Ministry of Finance. It not only reduces paper usage, but helps you to check if you win the receipt lottery.
