Maokong Gondola to Reopen on June 1

Following a major maintenance in the month of May, the Maokong Gondola will reopen to the public on Wednesday, June 1.

According to Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC), it was the first time for switching of the axle bearing by dismantling the gear wheels of the Maokong Gondola.

To facilitate the replacement of the axle bearing, the French company who constructed the gondola dispatched their engineers to Taiwan to oversee operations and to ensure that the works are completed on schedule.

In addition to replacing the axle bearing, maintenance and examination works were also conducted for other parts such as gearboxes, emergency brake calipers, and sheave trains. All checks have been completed and the system will be back in operations on June 1.

To save time, visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the gondola advance reservation system available on the Chinese website of e-services online (https://web.trtc.com.tw/c/gondola/booking/) ahead of time.

For more information, please call the 24-hour customer hotline of TRTC (TEL: 02-218-12345) or call the 1999 Citizens Hotline. Details are also available at the Chinese website of TRTC (http://www.metro.taipei/).
