Maokong Gondola to Hold Red Envelope Giveaway February 8-10

To herald Chinese New Year and welcome visitors at the beginning of spring, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC)will be giving away free red envelopes at the Maokong Gondola during the first three days of Chinese New Year (between February 8 and 10)!
Starting at 8:30 AM on the aforementioned dates, staff members dressed in the costume of God of Wealth will greet visitors at the Maokong Gondola’s Taipei Zoo Station. Kids taking the gondola will also receive a limited version “Hou-sei-li” red envelop and pencil set. Only 400 sets will be given away each day between February 8 and 10, so hurry!
For the upcoming CNY holiday, TRTC recommends visiting the great outdoors in Maokong, whether to offer one’s prayers at Zhinan Temple or enjoy a cup of tea surrounded in the mountains. The Maokong Gondola Super Value Round-Trip Ticket, priced at NT$260 (ticket could be returned for a NT$20 refund after use) is good for round trip travel to any stations – with the bonus option of exiting at one additional station. Furthermore, guests who purchase the roundtrip value ticket at the Maokong Gondola Taipei Zoo Station will receive a souvenir postcard.
Maokong Gondola services will be suspended on February 7. The hours between February 8 and 13 will be from 8:30 AM to 10 PM. The gondola will run from 8:30 AM to 9 PM on February 14, the last day of CNY holiday.
TRTC also reminds the public on the fare increase starting February 1. The price for travel spanning one station is NT$70; NT$100 for two stations, and NT$120 for three stations. Fare discount is available for Taipei citizens, seniors, handicapped individuals, children, and residents of local boroughs.
