About Us

The EasyCard Corporation was officially established in March 2000, the current total capitalization is NT$700 million. EasyCard Investment Holding Co., Ltd. is the largest shareholder accounting for 57.86%. Other main shareholders include Taipei City Government, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation, 12 Taipei-based bus operators, Cathay United Commercial Bank, Taishin International Bank, CTBC Bank, Taipei Fubon Commercial Bank, MiTAC INC., Mercuries Data Systems Ltd., China Engineering Consultants Inc. etc. Government shares’ consolidated shareholding ratio is about 38.43%. Shareholders of EasyCard Investment Holding Co., Ltd. include Taipei City Government, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation, 12 Taipei-based bus operators, banks and computer companies.

During the early stages of its development, the EasyCard Corporation launched a contactless smartcard, integrating the buses of Greater Taipei and the MRT system, which has reached a key milestone for the electronic transport ticket system. Now the EasyCard has extended its reach to island-wide public transit, such as Taiwan High Speed Rail, Taiwan Railways, intercity coach services, YouBike and Blue Ferry. Moreover, the card brings convenience to people by serving as a tool for small-value payments at designated shops like convenience stores, supermarkets and restaurants as well as used at leisure facilities, hospitals, government agencies and library self-checkout kiosks.

The innovation never stops here at EasyCard Corp. We have worked with several banks to issue Co-branded EasyCard featuring an auto-reload function. With automatic add value service, NT$500 will be added automatically to users’ EasyCards if the remaining value is insufficient to settle the transaction or lower than NT$100. The card can also be linked to people’s bank accounts. The reloaded NT$500 will be deducted directly from the designated accounts, freeing people from queuing up to reload their EasyCards. To embrace the era of mobile payments, we have worked with telecom operators to launch EasyCard mobile payment service, allowing people to use a phone SIM card to pay for fares or small purchases through the EasyCard app. At EasyCard Corp., our core values are convenience, security, trust and public welfare and our vision is to create a convenient living experience where people can enjoy EasyCard in their everyday lives. We want to provide people with more choices and the best service so that they can live a cashless lifestyle with a limitless EasyCard.
About Us


Create a leisurely day, with A cashless lifestyle and A limitless EasyCard

The EasyCard Corporation is looking forward to the day when people in Taiwan will be able to use their EasyCards from day to night: the room access card, buying breakfast, taking MRT, clocking in at work, a school roll call, buying coffee at convenience stores, riding a public bike, buying drinks and snacks at vending machines, lunch or dinner payment, borrow books from libraries, watch movie, and shopping in the supermarket; over holidays, traveling on Taiwan High Speed Rail, visit the zoos and tourist attractions; shopping on the Internet, paying utility bills, and so on. As long as you have the EasyCard with you, you can travel easily, enjoying a convenient cashless lifestyle.

Core Values and Strategies

Core Values and Strategies
Taipei Metro accepted the iPASS in September 2015. As of early 2017, the four major ticket companies in Taiwan have entered the domestic main transportation market—Taipei Metro and Taipei and New Taipei City-based bus systems, with the business of the four big electronic stored value card providers growing more and more consistent. Despite being the market leader, the EasyCard Corporation will face many challenges in the future. In the face of competition from other smartcard providers, we have a new layout and planning for the future—Developing differentiated competitive strategies in addition to establishing our core values and short-term and long-term goals.

Operating Status

Innovative advantages

Innovation is the driving force that leads the continuous growth and progress of enterprises, and is also a strong foundation in the cloud era.
With a growing trend towards mobile payment, the EasyCard Corporation use innovation to accompany the cardholder to experience the convenience of technology, so as to eliminate the inconvenience of cash payment for cardholders by popularizing the autoload feature, developing telecoms EasyCards, digital payment, and mobile phone EasyCards.


  • Launched in 2022, SuperCard not only significantly increased the single purchase limit of EasyCard to NT$10,000, but also upgraded the technical specifications of the card to meet the needs of various cash consumption fields. In order to make SuperCard more full-featured, EasyWallet’s top-up service was launched simultaneously allowing you to top-up, check balance, transaction details, set up autoload and register your EasyCard etc. anytime anywhere and even purchase TPASS. Easy Wallet’s top-up service also won the first “IT Matters Award – Product Project Award” that was instructed by Administration for Digital Industries, moda and hosted by Information Management Association.

Green and Easy Journey

  • Net Zero is the hottest topic nowadays, EasyCard launched "My Carbon Footprint" on EasyWallet in 2022 allowing cardholders to see their carbon footprint from taking Taipei MRT, buses and YouBikes. In 2023, EasyCard launched “Corporate employee commuting carbon emission statistics service” that provides a convenient way for enterprises to calculate the carbon footprint of employees’ commutes and assist enterprises to complete the greenhouse gas inventory of employees' commutes and travels at the same time. In 2023, EasyCard’s self developed "Transportation Carbon Footprint Statistics via Electronic Ticket" is the world’s first verified by The British Standards Institution (BSI) and is hoped to do our part for Taiwan’s sustainable development.

Cross-border Payment

  • As a leading payment tool in Taiwan, EasyCard has always been at the forefront of innovation. In 2022, EasyCard announced a partnership with the Bank of the Ryukyus. EasyCard became the first cross-border payment stored value card in Taiwan that can be used abroad. When Taiwanese consumers travel to Okinawa, Japan, they can use their EasyCard to make purchases and all transactions will be quoted as New Taiwan Dollar without exchange fees, which greatly reduces exchange loss, saves handling fees and brings unprecedented convenience to tourists. It can be used in a variety of places, from well-known aquarium shops, food and drink shops and some public transportations such as taxis and buses. It is EasyCard’s first step to go abroad and is hoped to provide Taiwanese tourists a convenient payment experience.


  • In 2006, we cooperated with financial institutions to issue the co-branded EasyCards, which integrate the functions of credit cards with the EasyCard, allowing for the EasyCard to be automatically refilled provided the balance is insufficient for payment, which remains popular with users. Considering the restrictions on the qualification for credit card application, we launched the "Debit EasyCard" in 2012, and planned the "Account Link" services in 2016, hoping to popularize the autoload feature so that the general public, students, and groups receiving social welfare services will be able to enjoy the convenience of automatic value-added services via Account Link by using a general name-registered card.

Telecoms EasyCard

  • The company issued the "NFC Telecoms EasyCard" in 2016. As long as your Android phone has the NFC function, after you apply to one of the major telecoms carriers for switching to the NFC-SIM card, “your mobile phone is the EasyCard"—you can take a nice trip with the phone on you, whether traveling on public transport or paying for small purchases, which is a big step in the field of mobile payment for the company. At the end of October, 2017, the company introduced the telecoms co-branded EasyCards, and the autoload feature was fulfilled on the mobile payment tool, with upgraded efficiency and convenience of mobile payment, which marked a new milestone.


  • To meet the needs of online customers, the company actively planed the online payment tool "digital payment" in addition to the multi-carrier in the physical transaction environment. As long as the cardholders apply for an account and password, they can scan the QR Code to complete the offline transaction or complete the online transaction and payment using the Internet. From offline to online, users can experience various convenient purchase, without restrictions on payment distance. Its applications include mini shop at night markets, Taipei city government municipal administrative fees, and various online transactions.

Mobile Phone EasyCard

  • The company is working with the Israeli firm to develop a "Mobile Phone EasyCard" to remove the limitations of the current iOS mobile phones unavailable on NFC feature for the telecoms EasyCard. In the future, mobile payment can be made with a Bluetooth-enabled cell phone through Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology, so that mobile payment is no longer blocked due to different platforms and users of all mobile phones can easily make a payment. This innovative technology will bring more convenience and choice to cardholders.
