  1. Integrate multiple cards and certificates such as student ID cards, employee cards, volunteer cards, motherhood cards, access cards, sports cards, health cards, farmers’ association membership cards, and credit cards. Manufacturing costs are thus saved and multiple functions are integrated. The citizen card integrates many cards into one.
  2. Citizens can enjoy the convenience of smart living with just one card in hand. The card can be used as an access card, a public transportation card for buses, metros, trains, and public bikes, and an employee card for punching in and out. Citizens can also use it to sign in at meetings, pay at stores, register courses at sports centers, and borrow books.
  3. Citizens are encouraged to use public service and will be given bonuses; businesses have also collaborated with the citizen card and provided gifts to encourage citizens to use the card more often. Many stores also provide special offers and discounts for citizens with the card.


As of July 19, 2019, the city government has issued over 1.4 million Taoyuan Citizen Cards (Taoyuan’s population is 2.2 million). The card provides over 31 service and collaborates with over 1,100 stores.
