New MRT Xinyi Line

November 20, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The long-awaited Xinyi Line of Taipei’s MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) system, or Taipei Metro, will be in operation before the end of the year. The new line will connect the northern city district of Beitou, best known for its hot springs, with the modern eastern district, home to the Taipei 101 skyscraper and Taipei World Trade Center as well as numerous large department stores and hotels, on a single line.

The establishment of this new line will mean that trains starting at Beitou Station will no longer proceed to the current terminal station, Taipower Building Station, instead proceeding to the terminus on the Xinyi Line, Xiangshan Station.

The current Xiaonanmen Line, which connects Ximen and CKS Memorial Hall stations, will be extended by two stops to Taipower Building Station. Find more info about the Taipei Metro system at:
