Improved Lighting

 

To make the Taipei Metro stations more beautiful, enhance the city’s nighttime scenery, and to provide a safer, brighter area for citizens, passengers, and residents living in the vicinity of Metro stations, nighttime lighting systems were installed in seven stations in 2007, including the Jiantan, Shilin, Zhongxiao Xinsheng, Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall, Gongguan, Daan, and Zhongxiao Fuxing stations. Lighted entrance and exit signs in stations were replaced with more modern-looking solar-powered LED lights to make the exits easier to find, save energy, and help the environment. Because the Daan Station is located on an elevated portion of the Metro situated in the city, lights were installed to shine on its columns, beams, and outer walls to enhance the station’s beauty and create a distinctive nighttime view.

Furthermore, to make Metro stations safer for citizens, passengers, and area residents, lights were added to entrances and exits and along paths leading to the Metro stations mentioned above, and also at nearby transfer bus stops. Lights were also installed near the double-decker bicycle racks and motorcycle parking areas located outside of the Jiantan and Gongguan stations. Lights in the Taipei Metro linear parks were modified to use brighter, energy-conserving lighting equipment, spot lights, and scenic lights, to both enhance the beauty of these areas and make them safer at night.
