In compliance with the government’s Level 3 COVID Alert adjustments, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) will be making the following modification to prevention measures starting July 13:
  • Facilities including Taipei Children’s Amusement Park, Maokong Gondola, Taipei Arena and Taipei Arena Ice Land, Beitou Resort (including fitness room and Evacuation Experience Center), and MRT International Hall will remain closed.
  • Upcoming events such as the 2021 MRT Street Dance Competition and 2021 Exit Music Festival will be cancelled.
  • MRT trains will continue to operate on peak schedule during peak hours, while services during non-peak hours will remain flexible and based on actual passenger flow. For accurate train service schedule, please refer to the “Go! Taipei Metro” app.

According to TRTC, the average daily passenger volume for the months of March through June of 2021 are as follows: 2.05 million, 2.01 million, 1.09 million, and 440,000. The average daily passenger volume for July through today is 510,000.

To minimize the risk of contagion, TRTC conducts disinfection for stations every 2 hours. Disinfection of trains are carried out every 4 hours. Major facilities undergo cleaning and sterilization processes with the help of staff from the Department of Environmental Protection and the army’s 33rd Chemical Corp.

Passengers are reminded to wear a face mask when visiting MRT stations (including ticket vending machine area and lobby area), Zhongshan Metro Mall, and East Metro Mall. Violators will face fines between NT$3,000 and NT$15,000.

For more information, please visit the Chinese website of TRTC (https://www.metro.taipei/) or call the 24-hour Cuztomer Service Hotline (02-218-12345) or the 1999 Citizens’ Hotline.
