So I decided to just register a new easycard with a UBike account since I officially have been living here for a year. I thought all I needed was a Taiwanese phone number (like on my old easy card which was set up years ago when I used to just visit) but when I entered my info at the kiosk it also asked for my “ID Number”.
I entered my ARC number, passport number,health card number, nothing worked.
So I went to went to the information center and they told me it’s because Foreigners are no longer allowed to register UBike accounts. I told them I have been working and living here for a year, I have work permit, ARC, health card etc, - they said I cannot be allowed with my ARC. They said I am only allowed to rent by using CREDIT CARD each time, single-use rides. Ugh…
Not so much “Easy”-Card anymore I guess.
Anyone else have this issue?
