The Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) said on Tuesday that it’s upgrading the ticket vending and deposit (add value) machines in the Taipei Metro system by adding the Japanese and Korean languages to the operational interface, with the upgrading for all the 337 machines in the system being scheduled to be completed at the end of March.
Taipei Metro’s ticket vending and deposit machines serve an average of 180,000 person-times every day, the TRTC said.
