Keelung City and Taipei’s Nangang District will likely span 19 kilometers and have nine stations, the Ministry of Transportation and Communications (MOTC) said Friday.

The system will use the Taiwan Railway Administration’s (TRA) existing tracks and stations, MOTC Railway Reconstruction Bureau Secretary-General Wen Tai-hsin (溫代欣) said during his briefing with President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) on the proposed tram project.
