Development History of the Mass Rapid Transit System in Taiwan

     The planning of the Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) System was started in 1975. In 1977, the Transportation Planning Board of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications completed the "Preliminary Planning Report on the Mass Transportation System in Taipei Area," which was the earliest development plan for the MRT system in Taipei. In March 1986, the Council for Economic Planning and Development of Executive Yuan submitted a report in the 1976th meeting of the Executive Yuan, and four MRT routes with a total length of 70.3 kilometers were approved. This is the initial network of the first version MRT map (Figure 1).
     In 1987, The Department of Rapid Transit Systems of the Taipei City Government was established specifically for the mission of planning, design and construction of mass rapid transit systems in the Taipei metropolitan area. On July 22, 1988, the first project of the Taipei MRT, the Beitou Depot, held a groundbreaking ceremony. By March 28, 1996, the Muzha Line was completed and opened to the public, becoming the first operating line of the Taipei MRT. The east-west and north-south bound network were thereafter completed successively, and the planning and construction of the follow-up road network continue.
     In addition to Taipei MRT, other metropolitan areas in Taiwan such as Kaohsiung, Taichung, Taoyuan, etc. have been also planning to build MRT systems and some have been completed and start operation ever since, providing people with more convenient and faster options for transportation.
     Welcome to A+ online system to learn more about the story of Taiwan MRT.
