MRT App by TRTC Now Available for iOS, Android Systems

Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) announced the release of TRTC-developed “台北捷運 Go (Taipei Metro Go)” application. The iOS version will be released at 10 AM on August 6. The public can access the latest MRT-related information, which is available for both iOS and Android platforms.

According to TRTC, Taipei MRT Go currently includes information spanning real-time train arrival time, Youbike rental sites around MRT stations, park-and-ride facilities, bus transfer info, elevator locations, as well as a special function calculating the ‘best’ route – in terms of the time and fare required.

Should any irregularity occur that affects the operations of the MRT network, push notifications will be dispatched immediately to help passengers plan their travels in advance.

The app has seen over 30,000 downloads since its launch. TRTC will work on updating Taipei Metro GO to incorporate features such as accessibility map, locker availability, public parking lots in the vicinity, and more.

In compliance with Taipei’s open data policy, TRTC has made available 22 data sets regarding the “台北捷運 Go” App to the public, thereby encouraging the development of value-added applications by the private sector.
