I guess the Taiwanese are critical about construction labor days and noise, but they are not concerned by what a visual eyesore the Circular Line is.

Firm ends free Wi-Fi on MRT
PRICE COMPETITION: The Taipei City Government activated 158 new hotspots for its TPE-Free Wi-Fi service after Hoveringsys said it ended its Free AD WiFi service
Taipei Times Excerpt

Hoveringsys Corp has stopped offering its Free AD WiFi service within the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system due to price competition from the nation’s major telecoms, the National Communications Commission (NCC) said yesterday.

The free Wi-Fi service was launched in July 2017 through a partnership between the Taipei-based company and Taipei Rapid Transit Corp (TRTC).

Users needed to tap on an advertisement page to access the service and did not need to set up an account.

Each user could access the service for free for 30 minutes. They could re-access the network should they be disconnected, and there were no limits on the number of times they could access the service.

The company sustained its operations through advertising revenue.

Last year, the company and TRTC announced that the service could be accessed on carriages and at MRT stations.

Danhai light rail to increase service during peak hours


_MG_0882 by waychen_c, on Flickr

Taipei, July 30 (CNA) Starting in September, trains on the Danhai Light Rail Transit system will run more frequently during peak travel hours, the operating company said Tuesday.

In the period 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. daily, the trains will depart every 12 minutes instead of every 15 minutes, the New Taipei Metro Corporation (NTMC) said.

The more frequent service will help reduce congestion on the Danhai line, which has been seeing growing ridership since it was launched last December, NTMC General Manager Wu Kuo-chi (吳國濟) said.

According to the NTMC, new electronic billboards will also soon be installed at the LRT Hongshulin Station to display the arrival and departure times of the trains.

The line, the first phase of a four-line light rail system, runs through 11 stations between Hongshulin MRT Station and Kanding Station, including seven overhead stops and four at ground level.

Since the light rail line began operation on Dec. 24, 2018, its ridership has reached a total 2.4 million passengers, according to Wu.

First phase of MRT Wanda Line to be completed by 2025
Excerpt

Taipei, Aug. 30 (CNA) Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said Friday that the first phase of the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit Wanda-Zhonghe-Shulin Line is scheduled to be completed by 2025.

Ko made the comment while inspecting the underground MRT Taipei Botanical Garden Station currently under construction.

In the first phase of construction, a 9.5 kilometer-long line is being built connecting Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall Station to Juguang Station in Zhonghe. It will have a total of nine underground stations.

According to the Taipei Department of Rapid Transit Systems, Taipei Botanical Garden Station will be the smallest of all the MRT stations currently in operation.

In order to preserve the integrity of the site, engineers had to carry out 44 months of archaeological excavation before construction work on the station started.

Six-compartment trains to Xinbeitou too noisy
PLAN SCRAPPED:The noise levels of nearly half of the test runs exceeded the maximum allowed level of 85 decibels, the Taipei Rapid Transit Corp said
Taipei Times Excerpt
Sep 16, 2019

A plan to add direct trains between Daan (大安站) and Xinbeitou (新北投站) stations cannot be approved because the noise on trial runs exceeded maximum allowed levels, Taipei Rapid Transit Corp (TRTC) said on Saturday.

Passengers taking the Tamsui-Xinyi Line (淡水信義線), also known as the Red Line, to and from Xinbeitou station must transfer at Beitou station (北投站), while the trains running between Xinbeitou and Beitou stations only have three compartments.

The noise on trial runs of six-compartment trains between Daan and Xinbeitou stations did not comply with the Noise Control Standards (噪音管制標準), so the plan was not approved by the Taipei City Government, the company said.

The plan was proposed by the wardens of Beitou District’s (北投) Changan (長安), Zhonghxin (中心), Wenquan (溫泉) and Linquan (林泉) boroughs in a meeting with Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) in May.
