Taipei Mass Rapid Transit (MRT)

The Taipei Mass Rapid Transit System also known as the MRT, is a series of underground and elevated metro systems throughout the Taipei metropolitan area. The MRT is one of the most expensive rapid transit systems ever constructed, with the initial phase costing over US$18 billion. Since its completion, it has reduced travel time from one end of Taipei to the other from up to three or more hours to less than an hour, and has been effective in relieving some of Taipei's traffic congestion problems. In addition to the rapid transit system itself, the TRTS also includes several public facilities such as underground shopping malls, parks, and public squares.
