The Taiwan PASS can be purchased from designated outlets such as Kkday or Klook and must be used by 30 November

Travellers need to download the Taiwan PASS mobile app, available on iOS and Android, and activate the pass by entering a redemption code received from the outlets.

The pass is also an effort to support the recovery of eastern Taiwan after the recent earthquake in Hualien County, so those using Taiwan Railways services under this pass must reserve their trips between Toucheng and Dawu stations on the Eastern Line.
