Taiwan: Taipei Transport MRT

I love the efficiency of the Taiwan MRT: Mass Rapid Transport. Trains that arrive on the minute with mathematical precision; lines of peaceful silent passengers waiting with regulated, white-paint lines; aircon, slippy sticky plastic steat, and insulated quiet. I’ve never been late because of the metro, never head a train arrive late, and heard an announcement of a late train. We just don’t do lateness with trains here apparently.

Let’s just not talk about buses today; I’ve no idea how they work. They’re something else altogether…
