Taoyuan Metro (formerly Taoyuan Rail Transit and officially Taoyuan Mass Rapid Transit System) is a rapid transit system serving the Taoyuan City area in Taiwan.[2] The proposed network will consist of five lines. The system opened for commercial service on March 2, 2017 with the opening of the Taoyuan Airport MRT.

Construction[edit]

In March 2011, the Bureau of High Speed Rail, which oversees construction of the project, announced that the 11.4 km (7.1 mi)-long elevated structure from Dayuan Station (A15) to Xingnan Station (A20) had been completed.[3] The rest of the Taoyuan Line passed an environmental impact assessment in July 2014. Construction is expected to last from June 2015 to 2019.[4]
