MRT Stations to Allow Boarding with Bicycles during Weekday Off-Peak Hours

MRT Stations to Allow Boarding with Bicycles during Weekday Off-Peak HoursTaipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) announced a trial that will allow passengers to board with bicycles at a majority of MRT stations during weekday off-peak hours (10 AM - 4 PM). The only exclusions are the following: the 24 stations of MRT Wenhu Line, MRT Tamsui Station, MRT Taipei Main Station, MRT Daan Station, MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing Station, MRT Nanjing Fuxing Station, MRT Zhongshan Station, and MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station.
 
The trial will be launched on April 2 and existing rules on travelling with bicycles on weekends and holidays will apply. Passengers carrying bicycles are required to purchase tickets at the information desk at the MRT station before boarding the train. The fare for one passenger with one bicycle is NT$80, regardless of distance traveled on the MRT.
 
TRTC reminds passengers travelling with bicycles to use the elevator and to board either the first or the last carriage. They should also be mindful of other passengers during travel on the MRT, including elders, young children, pregnant women, passengers on wheelchairs, and those with baby strollers.
 
Folding bicycles that are folded into allowable size limits and properly packed before boarding are allowed to be brought into stations. They will be treated as luggage and no additional fare is required.
 
Future adjustments may be made to suit actual conditions. For more information, please call the TRTC 24-hour customer service hotline (02-218-12345) or visit its website https://www.metro.taipei/ (Chinese). For callers in Taipei City, dial 1999 for Taipei City Citizen Hotline. For those outside Taipei City, please dial (02) 2720-8889.
