In respond to the needs of mobile payment and the popularization of mobile devices, Taoyuan City Government works with telecom companies and e-ticket companies to integrate the citizen card into the sim card of a mobile phone so that citizens are allowed to enjoy all the functions and service of a citizen card on their phone such as borrowing books, taking trains/metros/buses, renting Ubikes, purchasing at a convenience store, accumulating bonuses, etc., and getting special discounts at certain stores. Citizens are thus given more options in ways to use their citizen cards.


  1. Integrate with mobile devices.
  2. Support sensors.
  3. Promote usage channels.
  4. Encourage citizen adoption.

  2. With the NFC function, citizens can go without actually bringing the card and enjoy all functions of a citizen card, including shopping, taking public transportations, borrowing books, etc.
  3. At present, citizens can apply the Taoyuan Mobile Citizen Card service at four telecom companies (Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, FarEasTone Telecommunications, and Asia Pacific Telecom).

They can access their houses, take public transportations (including buses, metros, trains, and public bikes), punch in and out at the office, sign in at meetings, pay at stores, register courses at sports centers, and borrow books.
  2. The mobile card is combined with mobile payment to increase convenience.


Taoyuan Mobile Citizen Card has worked with the four major telecom companies (Chunghwa Telecom, Taiwan Mobile, FarEasTone Telecommunications, and Asia Pacific Telecom) for issuance. Citizens can apply for the service at 80 directly run shops of mobile service operators.
