The Taipei Times today reports that Taipei's MRT is the world's most reliable.
For the second consecutive year, Taipei's MRT system was rated by University of London's Railway Technology Strategy Center as the most reliable system among the world's 25 major metro systems last year, they said.
I am continually impressed by all aspects of the MRT from the cleanliness of the stations to the clockwork punctuality of the trains. I am sure that the high speed rail (when it opens) will be equally well run.
I recently created a new photo gallery dedicated to the Taipei MRT. There are not a lot of photos there at the moment, but I will add to it over time.
