Taipei City bus fares based on sections

1. Taipei Joint Bus System charges bus riders based on sections in accordance with provisions in Article 11 of the Autonomous Statutes for Taipei City Bus Operation Management . Sections are roughly determined based on the middle section of the bus route. An average operating mileage of about 8.5km is taken as a route section. In addition, natural boundaries, such as bridges and rivers, and major transfer points (such as Taipei Main Station, Zhongxing Bridge, Ziqiang Tunnel and MRT Gongguan Station) also are taken into account when determining the sectional dividing points for bus routes. Crossing the dividing point is subject to additional fare for another route section.
2. Currently, 1-section fare, 2-section fare and 3-section fare are charged for Taipei Joint Bus. Information on bus route sections can be found by visiting the Taipei Bus Information and Transit System website at https://ebus.gov.taipei/ and selecting the bus route of your choice, or you may check the route map at bus stops.
3. Passengers who board on buses in Taipei City and New Taipei City must swipe their cards both when getting on and getting off public buses since July 1, 2019. The 1-section fare would be deducted from the rider's card when they swipe the first time upon boarding. When passengers disembarks and swipes for the second time, they will either be charged nothing or  additional fare would be deducted, depending on the destination.
It would be calculated by the machine automatically.
