To celebrate Nangan Station available to service, TRTC runs a “panda” train in the MRT blue line.

Taking KMRT

I went to Kaohsiung last weekend, and took KMRT, which officially started passenger service in March 2008.

I feel the KMRT is very like TMRT, but it is more crowded because of only 3 carriages for each train.
And the turnstiles are not functioned so well. I failed to return the single journey ticket in my 3 trips, and tried for the second time for success.
