Goodbye EasyCard? Taiwan Launches Sailor Moon Sticks for Commuters!

Goodbye EasyCard? Taiwan Transforms Its Transport Pass to Sailor Moon Sticks!

Train passes have never looked this cute.

Our longing for Taiwan just skyrocketed to a whole new level now that the nation has revamped its EasyCards to Sailor Moon sticks! If you haven’t been to Taiwan, its EasyCards are basically transportation passes you can swipe in the subway, bus, and even cabs for easy transactions. But thanks to the anime makeover, Taiwanese commuters can kiss the EasyCard goodbye in favour of Sailor Moon’s iconic weapon that conjures the Moon Healing Escalation attack!

Sailor Moon sticks as EasyCards

These Sailor Moon sticks that function as EasyCards can be pre-ordered from the Momo online shop until 24 Jan 2022. They are priced at NT$1,799 (US$65.20).

Cute, magical, and pink, these EasyCard substitutes can be used not only to pay for fares, but also to shop at minimarts, department stores, and other retailers in Taiwan. To add to its enchanting appeal, the Sailor Moon stick will light up in three colours every time it’s being read by a scanner. You might even feel like the lunar heroine yourself!

If you’re buying it, you’ll be pleased to know that it comes in a neat and cushioned box that you can store it in for when you’re not using the stick. Turning it into a display and collector’s item isn’t a bad idea either. And just to give you a heads up, the Sailor Moon stick will stand out whenever you bring it along as it measures 18 centimetres long. 

This EasyCard alternative may be expensive, but think about how this could double up as a prop during Halloween. You won’t always need to travel to Taiwan just to use your transportation pass anymore!
