If they only want profit. There is no way we can learn from them.

Hong Kong and Taipei transport system are under subsidy if I not wrong.

I dislike Taipei bus. Not that the route is poor but the way the driver drive is like KL mini-bus.... Daredevil! But then, it's damn cheap. Only 2 stage of pricing, 15NT and 30NT. I always take bus 307 from where I stay to banqiao, office in ZhongHe or Taipei city.

Yea, especially during peak hour with meimeis that packed with "cushion bags".... [laugh]

Talk about their MRT (or TRT), they have a stupid token that looks like a plastic coin for single trips. I find it really silly. Don't know if they still use it now. Hardly take the train there. Mostly bus...

NVM.... I don't really understand how the plastic coin system used in SG too as I've not seen it. In MY, they have those typical parking lot coin machine where you can feed coins to start the countdown.

Actually the plastic coin has a chip inside just like the EZ-link card. Tap to go in, slot to go out. In fact I think it's a better idea than our scholars who can only think of implementing $1 deposit for single trip ticket. And the cost price of the ticket is more than $1, they lose money when tourists decide to keep it as souvenir.

Ok. Your info should be more updated. I last went Taipei at end-2011. It was still using the plastic coin. Ended up we bought 2 of the you-you cards.
