The Taipei Fun Pass is a special tourist pass aimed at tourists who want to explore the city with public transportation and visit the most popular attractions in Taipei. There are various types, some with unlimited transportation and/or access to some of the city’s top attractions.
What does it cost?
The Transportation pass allows unlimited use of both the Taipei Metro and city buses in Taipei and New Taipei. Additionally, this pass can be topped up to use just like a standard EasyCard, allowing visitors to use it at convenience stores, restaurants and other places that accept EasyCard.

2 days: NT$310
3 days: NT$440

Is it worth it?
If the places that you want to visit are on one of the Fun Passes, and you’re only spending a short time in Taipei, then it definitely makes sense to get a Fun Pass. Have a look at our Taipei destination guide to see where you want to visit. The fact that some of the passes allow unlimited travel on metro trains and buses also means that you’ll be able to freely explore the city and many additional tourist spots as well. The passes also come with discounts at various shops and restaurants. If you’re a traveler that wants to take their time, walk around or bike around on a YouBike, it may just be better to get a normal IC card.
Where can I buy it?
You can order the Transportation Pass, Exploring Pass or Unlimited Pass online for convenient pick up when you arrive at the airport or at Taipei Station. Additionally, you can purchase at a Taipei Metro information center at Taipei Station, Ximen Station or Songshan Airport Station.
