QR Code Payments Available For Travel on Buses, Light Rail, Ferries, and MRT

Kaohsiung NewsThe first-ever in Taiwan! Kaohsiung city is the first in Taiwan to launch QR code payments for travel on all G-Buses, light rail, MRT, and Gushan-Cijin ferry. Apart from electronic tickets, passengers can now use their smartphones to take buses, light rail, ferries, and MRT by simply scanning the iPASS Traffic QR Code (Line Pay Money).
The Transportation Bureau stated that with the change in payment habits of the public, smartphone payments for public transportation have become a future trend and an important pillar to build smart transportation. Mobile payments have been available for the Kaohsiung MRT and city buses O12 & 20 since 2019, and are now also available for light rail, ferries, and all G-Bus routes. The payment method is expected to cover the whole public transportation system in Kaohsiung city to turn it into a model city of smart transportation. Kaohsiung is the first city to run the QR code scheme in Taiwan, which is a new, efficient payment method for citizens to take buses. With its convenience, ticket packages with more discounts will be offered in the future. To promote the use of mobile payments, passengers who use Line Pay Money (iPASS Traffic QR Code) can take any of the G-Bus routes free of charge until the end of April.
The Transportation Bureau explained that passengers who use Line Pay Money (needed to be linked to a bank account) have to tap on and off, which is the same as the use of electronic tickets. By using Kaohsiung iBus APP, passengers can immediately check bus routes and access to real-time information to reduce wait times.
