‘LRT, I choose you’
Taiwan’s leading smartcard system EasyCard is bringing back its epic commuter x Pokémon collab: An all-around metro pass in the shape of a Poké Ball. PH’s Beep cards are shaking.
The project was first launched back in July 2019, where the Poké Balls were almost immediately sold out the same day. Meanwhile, the 2020 restock is reported to open for pre-orders this mid to late October.
The EasyCard pass is used as Taipei’s main form of payment in the Metro. Much like our Beep card, it can be used for other forms of contactless transactions such as for pvblic transport and convenience stores.
EasyCard has yet to announce the release date on their official Facebook page.
