Kaohsiung plans to build third MRT line within 8 years



Kaohsiung, April 21 (CNA) Kaohsiung, the largest city in southern Taiwan, has drafted a plan to construct a third line for its mass rapid transit (MRT) system within an eight-year period, according to Wu Yi-lung (吳義隆), director of the city's Mass Rapid Transit Bureau.

The planned line, which will be coded as the yellow line, will help create a "seamless" mass transport network incorporating the MRT, light-rail and railway lines in the city, Wu said on Friday.

He was delivering a briefing on the project to President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文), who was on a visit to inspect the port city's transportation infrastructure.

According to Wu, the planned yellow line will run through six of the city's 38 districts and will be 21.2 kilometers in length. Upon completion, the new line is expected to serve over 1 million people.

Wu pledged to build the new line within the eight-year period, noting that the project has been delivered to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for review.

According to the bureau, the Kaohsiung Metropolitan Area Mass Rapid Transit System (KMRT) is presently composed of two MRT lines -- red and orange -- and an under-construction light-rail circular line.

The total length of the three lines amounts to 66.7 km.

Due to its low coverage and the lack of efficient transfer services, the number of KMRT users has been limited to some 180,000 per day since it started commercial operation in 2008.

The system had run at a loss until the end of last year, the bureau said.

To complete the KMRT network, the bureau proposed the construction of the yellow line and an extension of the red line to Luzhu District close to Tainan, at a total cost of some NT$145.5 billion.

The yellow line project has been included in the Executive Yuan's "Forward-looking Infrastructure Development Plan," according to the bureau.

After taking a ride on the Kaohsiung light-rail line earlier in the day, Tsai said she fully supports the city's transportation infrastructure drives.

"Now is a key moment in Kaohsiung's urban transformation," Tsai said.

MRT Yellow Line Pilot Bus - Yellow 2 Bus Will be the First to Operate Leapfrogging Bus Stops Makes Commuting Fast and Convenient


[Kaohsiung news] The Kaohsiung City Government Transportation Bureau has stated that the Kaohsiung MRT Yellow Line is expected to be completed by 2024. To cultivate passengers and traffic volume so that passengers are familiar with the Yellow Line route, the Yellow 2 bus will be going into operation starting on April 1. The Transportation Bureau hopes that by providing more convenient and faster public transportation, a commuter group and traffic volume can be cultivated for the MRT Yellow Line.

The Transportation Bureau indicates that the MRT Yellow Line runs in a “人” shape and the Yellow 2 bus route runs along the “人” shape lower path that passes by the Chang Gung Hospital, Chengcing Lake, the City Government Fongshan Administrative Center, Weiwuying, City Council, and the Wujia Shopping District. The Transportation Bureau expects to open the Yellow 1 bus route on July 1, which will run along the “人” top path that passes the Chang Gung Hospital, Chengcing Lake, the Jiangong Shopping District, the City Government Sihwei Center, Sanduo Shopping District, and the Asia’s New Bay Area.

The Yellow 2 bus will be operated by Gangdu Bus and the operating times will be from 06:00 to 22:00 during weekdays. The bus starting station will be the Cianjhen Senior High School and the terminal station will be the Jhongcheng Rd. intersection. During peak hours, the interval between buses will be 10 - 15 minutes and during off-peak hours, the interval between buses will be 20 – 35 minutes. A portion of the buses will be operating in a leapfrog mode that can save transportation time by 20%. The Transportation Bureau believes that this bus will become a convenient and fast transportation mode for commuters.

The Transportation Bureau states that the Yellow 2 bus is expected to utilize the fast-charging low-floor Type A electric buses. The buses have low floors and are equipped with air cushion suspension and wheelchair ramps. This makes it convenient for the elderly and people with physical disabilities to use the buses, and provides a clean and environmentally friendly public transportation environment for Kaohsiung residents and travelers.

To give the public a better understanding of the convenience of this bus route, the Transportation Bureau organized a Yellow 2 bus promotion event at Chang Gung Hospital on March 30 to promote the April 1 route opening news. The event attracted the attention of people who were seeking medical attention at Chang Gung Hospital. Questions people were concerned with included the bus operating hours and intervals between buses. An attendee by the surname of Chen stated, “Taking the bus makes commuting to Chang Gung easier, and you don’t have to fight for a parking space.”
