THSRC still considering whether to increase fares
CAUTION AHEAD : The company said it would consider contract terms, operating costs, market competitiveness and passenger demands before making a final decision
Taipei Times Excerpt

The Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp (THSRC) yesterday said it has not yet decided whether to raise ticket prices, although the Ministry of Transportation and Communications has given it the green light.

Based on the new scheme announced by the ministry at the end of last month, THSRC’s base fare is to be raised from NT$4.009 per kilometer to NT$4.134 per kilometer.

Should the high-speed rail operator decide to adopt the new scheme, a one-way ticket from Taipei to Kaohsiung’s Zuoying (左營) would rise from NT$1,490 (US$49.12) to NT$1,570.

Riders would have to pay an additional NT$160 if they were to purchase a round-trip ticket, while a family of four would have to shell out NT$640 more.

A one-way fare from Taipei to Taichung would increase by NT$40 to NT$740, while a ticket from Taipei to Tainan would rise from NT$1,350 to NT$1,425.

People traveling from Taipei to Hsinchu would have to pay NT$15 more for a one-way ticket, which would cost NT$305.

The Bureau of High Speed Rail said the new base fare scheme was approved based on changes in the consumer price index.

The last time the high-speed rail system’s base fare was adjusted was in 2013, when it increased from NT$3.655 per kilometer to NT$4.009 per kilometer, the bureau said.

THSRC to promote rail development to private sector
Taipei Times Excerpt

Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp (THSRC) is to host an information session tomorrow on business opportunities from development of the nation’s railway industry.

The company said that it would offer a list of services and requirements from the private sector in the next 10 years, including supplies, facilities, services and technologies needed to maintain and upgrade the high-speed rail system, such as train carriages, signaling systems, railway lines, power supply systems and electromechanical systems.

Contracts are estimated to be worth NT$17 billion (US$561.1 million), the company said.

The Taiwan Railways Administration, Taipei Rapid Transit Corp, Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp and Taoyuan Metro Corp have also been invited to discuss their business prospects and opportunities available to private contractors, THSRC said.

Meanwhile, 90 companies offering services and products related to the railway industry have also been invited, it added.

Taipei Times Excerpt
Lawmakers call for extension of rail to Pingtung
WISHFUL THINKING : The premier told a legislator that he should stop criticizing the infrastructure program if he wants the Taipei MRT to come to his constituency

Legislative Speaker Su Jia-chyuan (蘇嘉全) on Friday urged Premier William Lai (賴清德) and Minister of Transportation and Communications Hochen Tan (賀陳旦) to attach high-level importance to assessments of extending the high-speed rail and Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) networks to Pingtung County.

The speaker made the remarks at the Legislative Yuan in Taipei following a question-and-answer session between Democratic Progressive Party Legislator Su Chen-ching (蘇震清), Lai and Hochen.

Most Pingtung residents have moved out of the county, and its population is just more than 840,000, Su Chen-ching said.

Transportation is crucial to closing the gap between urban and rural development, Su Chen-ching said.

Pingtung residents have anticipated extensions that would bring the high-speed rail and Kaohsiung MRT networks to the county, Su Chen-ching said before presenting Lai with a poster that depicted the high-speed rail network reaching the county and expressing the hope that Lai would hang the poster on his office wall as a reminder of residents’ expectations.

Citing a Global Views Monthly report, which put the county’s competitiveness at No. 21 out of 22 cities and counties nationwide, Su Chen-ching said the lack of advanced transportation systems has hindered Pingtung’s development.

However, the lawmaker said the previous six premiers and four transportation ministers that he had questioned about stretching the railways southward had all equivocated, citing “timing” and “technical issues.”

The central government’s efforts to create public infrastructure in the south have been insufficient, causing a number of southern counties and municipalities to become less competitive than their northern counterparts, Lai said.

Hochen said that the ministry is in December to complete assessments of high-speed rail routes connecting Kaohsiung and Pingtung, while the possibility of building a high-speed rail station in the county has been included in assessments for projects under the Cabinet’s Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Program.

Cool. I used Taiwan HSR a few times and it is a stunning system. What's more it is perfectly affordable unlike European systems.
