*The fare for each zone is currently NT$15. Most rides within Taipei city do not go through more than one zone. Bus drivers DO NOT provide change so students should prepare exact change before boarding (otherwise, a NT$15 bus ride may end up costing a student NT$100 or more!). The fare may be paid by using an EasyCard (see below), or in exact change on the bus. Some buses require payment upon boarding, others upon leaving; a sign on the bus will specify this. A traveler should not have to pay twice unless he/she has traveled through more than one zone.
