For the revamped Taipei Metro Travel Pass and Joint Ticket, TRTC has invited Whitelight Motion to design the key visuals by drawing inspiration from the theme of Taipei Anytime, so that the Travel Pass (one-day pass, 24/48/72hr pass) will be able to represent the different dimensions of the city as perceived by travelers. The one-day pass is divided into retail and group purchase versions, embodying the imagery of Fabulous Day and Splendid Night, while the 24/48/72hr pass is represented by the image of Dawn, Tangerine Sunset, and Dusk, where spot varnishing is applied to enhance the texture and quality of the pass. Joint tickets are also available to cater to travelers’ needs; you are welcome to take advantage of the versatile MRT system for your traveling needs in Greater Taipei.

The Traveling in Taipei with MRT Coupon Guidebook and the key visual area were designed by illustrator Nio, who applied a simple, playful style to depict the cultural sentiments and gourmet delicacies of Taipei City. The guidebook’s graphics are complemented by written words that not only offer a brief introduction of 18 tourist attractions along the MRT lines, but it also contains coupons for a large selection of stores. Each coupon can be used only once at selected stores, and are valid until April 30, 2020. For more details, please refer to the event website.
