New Escalators Added for 3 MRT Stations

MRT station Exit equipped with 2 escalatorsTaipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) reported that constructions of new escalators have been completed for the following stations: MRT Shandao Temple Station Exit 3 and MRT Far Eastern Hospital Exit 2. These exits will reopen on Sunday, January 31.
Furthermore, a new escalator has been installed at M2 Exit of MRT Taipei Main Station as well. This exit will reopen on Tuesday, February 9.
In response to an aging society, TRTC seeks to provide an obstacle-free environment for access to MRT stations and to realize the vision of having at least one exit (among multiple exits along the same road) equipped with two escalators or 1 elevator. The Department of Rapid Transit Systems devised plans to set up new escalators and elevators for selected exits at a number of MRT stations to achieve this objective.
According to TRTC, the project will add 62 escalators and 1 elevator across 4 platform exits and 23 station exits at 16 MRT stations by the end of 2022.
For more information, please call TRTC at its 24-hour customer service hotline (TEL:02-218-12345) or the 1999 Citizens' Hotline. Details are also available at the agency's Chinese website (https://www.metro.taipei/).
