Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport MRT Company released a new statement on Friday clearing up
some ticket price rumors.
Lately there have been rumors circulating on social media saying that the ticket price for the MRT line linking the airport with Taipei City will be set at NT$50 per trip from the airport to Taipei Main Station, much cheaper than that of both bus and high speed rail, which stand at NT$125 and NT$160, respectively.
Addressing the false rumors of the alleged low fare, the airport MRT company said Friday that the rumored ticket price does not match the high cost of operation they incurred, and that such falsehood has posed a problem for the company, prompting them to make an official statement in order to clear up the misunderstanding.
After much delay, the highly-anticipated airport MRT line could finally be set to launch in the first half of 2017, as Minister of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) Ho Chen Tan announced Wednesday. [FULL STORY]
