    【Kaohsiung News】The TPASS Tainan-Kaohsiung-Pingtung monthly pass is now available for NT$999! Chang Shu-Chuan, director-general of the Transportation Bureau, visited the Taiwan Railway Fengshan Station and Kaohsiung Station in the wee hours of the third morning to assess the public use situation, which was found to be positive and unimpeded.

    Chang Shu-Chuan, general director of the Transportation Bureau led Liu Chien-Pang, deputy director-general of Transportation Bureau, Chen Wen-Chuan, director of Taiwan Railways Administration, Lin Chih-Ming, vice general manager of Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp., and Transportation Bureau employees to visit theTaiwan Railway Fengshan Station and Kaohsiung Station to inspect the public use situation during peak hours on the 3rd. This policy perk received unanimously positive ratings from the general public, and its use situation is excellent. The Taiwan Railways Administration dispatches personnel to the location to provide guided illustrations. Chen, a commuter who travels from Tainan Yung Kang to Kaohsiung, said, “It is such a perk that instead of spending nearly NT$3,000 per month on commuting, I now have unlimited access for only NT$999, which significantly reduces my burden.”

    According to Chang Shu-Chuan, the Tainan-Kaohsiung-Pingtung NT$999 Commuter Monthly Pass launched by the three counties: Tainan, Kaohsiung and Pingtung significantly reduces the burden of commuting for the general public and balances urban and rural development. It is anticipated that this policy will increase public transportation usage and transportation safety. In response to this policy, Kaohsiung City has doubled the stakes. The MeNGo system automatically calculates carbon reduction, and by reducing carbon emissions by six tons per year, a preferential offer of a free one-month monthly pass can be earned.

    According to the Taiwan Railways Administration, three individuals who purchased the NT$999 plan via the MeNGo app forgot to activate their passes. With the assistance of site personnel, they were able to successfully swipe their passes. The Transportation Bureau reminds city residents who use the commuter monthly pass plan that after purchasing or renewing their monthly pass on the MeNGo website or APP, they must complete the card swiping setting prior to use at the MRT station information desk, 7-11 iBon, or Taiwan Railway TPASS information desk (Tainan, Xinying, Pingtung, and Chaozhou Stations), as well as Taiwan Railway Third Class Station or higher, in order to be eligible for free rides. Visit the MeNGo APP, official website (, or the Transportation Bureau’s website ( to search for information regarding monthly passes, TPASS, and monthly pass sale channels. The Transportation Bureau of the City of Kaohsiung invites you to purchase monthly passes, save money, and enjoy unlimited access to public transportation!
