Kaohsiung tram line extended by four more stops

Kaohsiung, June 26 (CNA) Taiwan's first light rail system, which started trial runs with four stops in Kaohsiung last October, saw the inauguration of four additional stops Sunday.

The first tram on the extended line departed at 9 a.m. from the new C8 stop serving the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center, but there were no long lines of waiting passengers that occurred last year when the trial runs first began.

The newly inaugurated section of the tram line and the C5-C8 stops are mainly situated along the city's Chenggong 2nd Road, which runs parallel with Kaohsiung Harbor.

With the new section and the four original stops, the length of the tram line is now extended to 4.6 kilometers, but is still only a part of the 8.7-km, 14-stop line that was previously scheduled to be completed this month.

However, because of a financial crisis that emerged last October with the main contractor of the light rail project -- Evergreen Construction Corp. -- the Kaohsiung City Mass Rapid Transit Bureau was forced to delay the the full completion of the line by one year to June 2017.

According to the bureau, tracks have not yet been laid on a section of over 1 km between the C12 and C14 stops, and a bridge built for the line across the Love River between the C10 and C11 stops has not been completed. The bureau said the free trial runs of the tram line will continue with the extended section, while the frequency of the trams will remain once every 30 minutes in each direction.

The service hours will remain the same, with the first trams in each direction departing from the C1 and C8 stops at 9 a.m. and the last ones at 7 p.m., the bureau added.

There is a plan to adjust the service hours to 7 a.m.-9 p.m., and to increase the frequency to 10-15 minutes, but no date has been set for the introduction of these measures, the bureau noted.

The bureau also reminded passengers planning to take the tram that they must use the iPass stored-value card for the free rides during the trial period.

The line, built mainly along Kaohsiung Harbor, is the first phase of the city's light rail system, which will eventually run on a circular route after the second phase is completed.

The light rail system, the first to enter service in Taiwan, has been designed and built by Spanish company Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles, S.A. and runs with no wires above the trams.

The budget for the line was set at NT$16.54 billion (US$509.98 million) and the city government is in the process to select a contractor to build the second phase, which is scheduled to be completed in 2019.

Kaohsiung tram signalling contract awarded
19 Jan 2017



TAIWAN: China Steel Corp has awarded a contract for Thales to supply signalling for the extension of the Kaohsiung light rail line, the supplier announced on January 19.

The 4½ year contract includes the supply of interlockings, traffic light priority systems and automatic vehicle location detection.

Alstom to supply trams to Kaohsiung
23 Jan 2017



TAIWAN: China Steel Corp has awarded Alstom a contract to supply 15 Citadis X05 trams for the second phase of the Kaohsiung tram project.

To be assembled in La Rochelle, with components coming from Alstom sites in France and Italy, the trams will be equipped with permanent magnet traction motors and roof-mounted Citadis Ecopack supercapacitor units to allow catenary-free operation. These would be recharged through the catenary at stops, which would take 20 sec

Third KMRT line proposed; expected to take eight years
Taipei Times with CNA Excerpt

Kaohsiung has drafted a plan to construct a third Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit System (KMRT) line in the next eight years, Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Co director Wu Yi-long (吳義隆) said.

The planned line — which will be coded yellow — will help create a “seamless” transport network incorporating the KMRT and light and local railway lines in the city, Wu said on Friday.

He was briefing President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on the project as she inspected the city’s transportation infrastructure.

Wu said the yellow line would run 21.2km through six of the city’s 38 districts. The new line is expected to serve more than 1 million people.

Wu pledged the new line would be built within eight years, adding that the draft has been sent to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for review.

The KMRT has two lines — red and orange — and a light-rail line that is being constructed.

Opened in 2008, only about 180,000 people use the KMRT per day because of its limited coverage and lack of efficient transfer services. The system had run at a loss until the end of last year, the company said.

Looks more like two lines, with just a short shared section.

Kaohsiung’s light rail ridership halved
NO LONGER FREE : In the week after the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit system began to charge fares, ridership has fallen about 50 percent on weekdays, 40 percent on weekends
Taipei Times and CNA Excerpt

Ridership on the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit (KMRT) system’s light rail line dropped by half to about 3,500 riders a day in the first week after the line started charging fares on Wednesday last week.

Travel on the light rail line, the first of its kind in the nation, had been free since it opened in October 2015.

With a sharp increase in the number of passengers following the extension of the line this year, the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit Bureau decided to start charging fares.

In the six months prior to Wednesday last week, ridership on the line averaged 7,000 passengers per day on weekdays, and nearly 20,000 on weekends and holidays, said Shih Yao-cheng (石耀誠), head of the Department of Public Affairs of Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp (KRTC), which has been commissioned by the bureau to operate the line.

However, over the past week, ridership has fallen about 50 percent on weekdays, and 40 percent on weekends and holidays compared with when rides were free, Shih said.

About 40 to 50 riders per day did not pay fares, Shih said, but the company is giving fare evaders a grace period to pay what they owe.

Once the grace period ends at the end of this year, those who evade fares could face fines equal to 500 times the cost of the fare they failed to pay.
Shih said that most of the fare evaders were EasyCard users, mainly because Kaohsiung’s light rail system does not accept EasyCards, which are the main stored value card used on Taipei’s public transportation system.

The light rail line runs from Lizihnei Station (C1) to Hamasen Station (C14), with the section between Dayi Pier-2 Station (C12) and Hamasen Station opening on Sept. 30.

The 8.7km waterfront rail is part of the Kaohsiung Circular Line that was designed to complete the city’s metro service network.

Ko is to address Kaohsiung EasyCard issue, says he should learn to speak less
Taipei Times Excerpt

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) yesterday said he would send a request to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications to help solve the issue of EasyCards not being accepted on the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit (KMRT) light rail line.

The line begin charging fares on Wednesday last week, but EasyCards, which are widely accepted on Taipei public transportation, are not a payment option.

Former Taipei mayor Hau Lung-bin (郝龍斌) had insisted on market equality for Kaohsiung’s iPass and Taipei’s EasyCards, but even though iPass cards can be used in Taipei, EasyCards are still not accepted on the KMRT light rail, Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Taipei City Councilor Chin Huei-chu (秦慧珠) said.

“I will call the ministry immediately and ask them to deal with the case quickly. If not, we will take the case to the Fair Trade Commission,” Ko said.
Meanwhile, KMT Taipei City Councilor William Hsu (徐弘庭) said that EasyCard Corp had donated NT$100,000 (US$3,311) to the New Culture Foundation last year and this year.

As the foundation was founded by Representative to Japan Frank Hsieh (謝長廷) and has often invited Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) politicians to make speeches, Hsu questioned whether it is appropriate for the semi-governmental company to donate to an organization associated with politics.

Kaohsiung to fight air pollution with free public transport program
Excerpt

Nov. 28 (CNA) Kaohsiung City is rolling out a three-month free public transportation program on Dec. 1 to combat the heavy air pollution that usually plagues the city at this time of year.

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊) announced the city government's plan to make public transportation in the city free to all e-ticket users.

The program, which comes from Kaohsiung's Environmental Protection Bureau (EPB), allows those who possess an e-ticket, including iPASS, to take city buses, highway buses and the light rail trains for free.

People with an e-ticket who take the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) trains can ride free of charge on weekdays from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. to help them commute to and from work or school.

According to Chen, air pollution is particularly severe from December to February in Kaohsiung, which is why the city government is encouraging people to use public transport.

EPB Director Tsai Meng-yu (蔡孟裕) said that this is the first program of its kind in Taiwan, noting that it will cost about NT$200 million.

Peak ridership on Kaohsiung metro rises on 1st day of free travel
Excerpt

Dec. 1 (CNA) The number of passengers who took the Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) during morning peak hours rose more than 10 percent on Friday, the first day the city provided free public transport in an effort to combat air pollution, according to data released by Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp.

The data showed that the number of passengers taking the Kaohsiung Metro from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 am. on Friday totaled 26,970, up 3,072 or about 13 percent from the same period on Nov. 24.

The free public transportation program was announced by Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chu (陳菊) three days ago following a deterioration in air pollution in the largest city in southern Taiwan.

Under the free public transport program, holders of electronic cards, including the iPass, can also take city buses, highway buses and light rail trains free of charge from 6:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. during weekdays.

The program, initiated by Kaohsiung's Environmental Protection Bureau (EPB) at a time of worsening air pollution in central and southern Taiwan, will run through Feb. 28.

On the city's light rail system, only passengers with iPass and Happy Cash cards can ride for free.
