Taipei Commuters Use Mobile Phones as Digital Wallets
Asia Scout Network point us to commuters in Taipei, Taiwan who are using their mobile phones to make traveling a bit more convenient. Mobile phone users attach a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip to their mobile SIM card and transportation fees can then be charged via the Easy card system, eliminating the need to buy and carry a ticket for each trip. The system can be used to pay for Taipei’s Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), buses and parking fees.
