Public transport in Taipei relies on the five lines of the MRT (mass rapid transit system) and the city's vast bus network. Auto ticket machines are prevalent in the stations, with prices ranging from NT$20 to NT$65 depending on the distance. There are day passes available. Metered taxis are available, but drivers rarely understand English so it is advisable to have your destination written down in Chinese.
