* 「The first home run for social welfare this year—The county government raised transportation benefits to NT$1000」
Date : 104/03/10
Magistrate Lin Ming-chen hit the first home run for social welfare this year! From March 1, the value of the Elder Transportation Card would be raised from NT$300 to NT$1000, providing more transportation convenience for both the elderly and disabled people to take bus rides or medical bus trips. Subsidizing both parties with the same amount of NT$1000, Magistrate Lin expressed at the press conference on February 9, they could travel and take medical buses with more convenience.

Magistrate Lin pointed out that by the end of 2014 there were 75,594 elderly people at the age of 65 or above and 34,240 in Nantou. In the past the government subsidized NT$300 to elderly people and NT$500 to the disabled for transportation. If they lived in remote areas, they could hardly afford to travel long distances or take buses to see a doctor. In order to promote the benefits of those in need, the county government increased the budget from NT$30 million to NT$92 million from the surplus of lottery income to upgrade social welfare policies.

Mr. Wang Chia-ling, the Assistant General Manager of the Easy Card Corporation expressed that EasyCard had been cooperating with many towns and cities in operating Senior Citizen Travel Cards. After increasing the amount of the card to NT$1000, Nantou was one of the counties and cities that provided the highest values of transportation benefits. Chen Shan-hsiu, the Director of the Association of Spinal Cord Injury Nantou, suggested that the government change the buses into low-floor vehicles to facilitate the boarding elderly and disabled people.

The Senior Citizen Travel Card in Nantou was launched on March 2005. Since March 1, 2009, they had been changed into IC cards. 42,863 cards for elderly people and 6,777 for disabled people with the total of 49,640 cards have been issued since the beginning of its operation. Now, there are 11 bus companies in Nantou providing free bus services to elderly and disabled people, providing them with transportation rights.

All senior citizens at age 65, or above or people holding disability cards, can apply for the “Elderly and Charity Travel Card” with copies of their ID cards (both front and back) and two 2 inch photos taken within two years at the township offices in their districts. With this card, they can enjoy free transportation on the buses using the program in Nantou.

Magistrate Lin would like to thank the 11 buses companies, Taiwan Smart Card Corporation, and Easy Card Corporation. He emphasizes that in addition to consolidating the plan of raising the transportation benefits, the County Government would also like to raise funds for the Elderly Bonus presented on the Double Ninth Festival and childbirth benefits to promote better welfare to folks with his new social welfare policies.
