There is a 1day unlimited metro pass; just get at the station, but not sure if can use on buses
If you have multiple days in taipei and taking buses as well, can get the equivalent of our Easylink card... 500NTD with 100NTD refundable deposit

er...

wanna check with you guys,
is there any tourist 1-day pass for trains in tw?
I noe certain countries have em specially for tourists
but not sure tw have em or not?

if there is, how to buy em?
very hard to search thru 600++ pages =X
thanks in advance

Just use the Easy Card. The one day pass is not economical. Most Forumers have balance left over the NTD 500+ Deposit at the end of their trip (All balance + Deposit is refundable) In Taipei city, the BUS+MRT combination is inexpensive and it takes you to mostly all the important places)
