Yes, it's called the EasyCard. Only Metro Stations and City Buses accept the EasyCard.

The EasyCard is available at all Metro Stations (through their automated machines) and 7-Eleven outlets. Retails at NT$500 with a NT$100 deposit.

Yup, you're right on both.

Their other train transports (HSR, railway) uses different systems. Long distance buses (Kuo-Kuang, Freego, etc) and some private bus companies accepts cash only.

I do prepare a small pouch with coins just in case

輕颱盧碧朝菲去 下週三變天防豪雨

更新日期:2009/10/17 08:05

第二十號颱風盧碧,今天清晨形成。目前快速朝向菲律賓近海移動,預估未來兩、三天,速度可能放慢,直到下週二(20號)起,外圍環流逐漸接近,屆時台灣地區的天氣將轉為不穩定,21~22號兩天將是影響最明顯的時刻,如果位置更偏北,外圍環流可能搭配北方的東北風,導致共伴效應再度發威,東半部及北部山區要特別留意。下週一之前,台灣地區的天氣相對穩定。(彭群弼報導)


氣象局表示:盧碧颱風清晨兩點增強為輕度颱風,未來有進一步發展的趨勢,下午兩點位置移動到北緯13.9度,東經136.1度,距離台灣仍有兩千公里左右,原本移動速度超快的盧碧,預期很快就會放慢,由於太平洋高壓減弱,因此未來幾天,盧碧將會陷入搖搖晃晃的處境,路徑也會略微偏北,預估二十號起逐漸接近菲律賓東方近海,如果位置靠近呂宋島,台灣地區的天氣也會逐漸受到一些影響。


預估下週三(21號)起,外圍環流開始影響台灣地區,包括東半部,北部山區都有下雨的機會,二十一號及二十二號,如果剛好碰上北方系統南下,就會重演類似芭瑪颱風:暖空氣在南,冷空氣在北,冷暖在東北部近海產生共伴的豪雨威脅,屆時民眾要留意天氣動態,根據目前的路徑預估,下週三的位置,大約在呂宋島東北部陸地,與芭瑪颱風相當類似。外圍環流產生共伴降水有機會對東半部,東北部及北部山區,帶來豪雨。未來幾天盧碧的動向還需要持續觀察,三天之後預報的誤差會大幅提高,請民眾隨時注意最新的預報內容。


氣象局表示:太平洋高壓勢力決定盧碧的速度,預估會出現減弱後再度增強的變化,因此,未來幾天放慢速度之後,可能在通過菲律賓陸地時,速度加快,一旦如此,台灣地區受外圍環流的共伴豪雨威脅時間就可望縮短,否則一旦路徑偏北,台灣地區受影響程度就會增加,氣象局將持續監控,並隨時更新預報內容。至這幾天,氣象局表示:台灣地區天氣相對穩定,僅東北部地區有短暫陣雨。
