Foreign seniors in Tainan to be given discounts

The Tainan City Government has announced that senior permanent foreign residents over the age of 65 who hold Alien Permanent Residence Certificates (APRC), may apply for seniors’ cards which will entitle them to free bus rides in Tainan plus 50% discounts on MRT rides in Taipei, Taoyuan and Taichung. This represents a further breakthrough for long-term senior foreign residents of Taiwan following similar moves by the cities of Taipei and Kaohsiung over the past few months. It has been achieved thanks to many years of advocacy by the ECCT’s Better Living committees to grant equal treatment to legal foreign residents of Taiwan and the efforts of the Tainan City Government.
