TRTC Kicks off Metro Culture Festival
Mayor Hau Lung-bin kicked off the first Taipei Metro Culture Festival at Maokong Gondola Taipei Zoo Station on March 28. He noted that the mass rapid transit system has become a kind of "landmark" for Taipei City due to its convenient services, cleanness, kind volunteers, and a queuing culture.
Hau took the opportunity to express his gratitude to all the residents of Taipei for their role in helping to maintain a tidy environment along the MRT network, abiding by the rules of not eating, drinking, or chewing gum when inside the station or on trains. Passengers also demonstrate metro etiquette and respect for others through practices such as lining up, standing on the right side on the escalator, and yielding seats to the needed.
To promote the unique metro culture, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) has selected March 28--the day when the first MRT line was launched--as a day to be observed annually to remind the public of being considerate to others.
Highlights of the first Taipei Metro Culture Festival include:
1. Metro Elevator Design Contest
2. Searching for Metro Riders
(2) Birthday Metro Rider
