TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – A New York resident recently shared her experience riding the Taipei Metro, describing the service as “one of the best mass transit systems in the world.”

Martha Sorren, who has lived in New York for seven years, wrote an article published by Insider about how she was impressed with the MRT, a major public transportation system in the capital of Taiwan.

According to her, Taipei Metro has lots to boast about, including its cleanness, inexpensive fares, efficiency, and clear signs. The relatively late start of the Taipei Metro service, which commenced in the 1990s, could be the reason that it has avoided many drawbacks of lousy subway systems, she believes.

Sorren provided a detailed account of the multiple merits of the Taipei Metro in the article, suggesting that it is something that other countries can learn from.
