Facilities for the Disabled

1. Reserved Spaces for Wheelchairs

* Tamsui-Xinyi Line, Songshan-Xindian Line, Zhonghe-Xinlu Line, Bannan Line

Reserved spaces for wheelchairs are located at both ends of the train
behind the driver’s compartment. Although passengers in wheelchairs
may board the train from any door, boarding from the lead carriage is
recommended so that the driver may provide assistance if necessary.

* Wenhu Line

Reserved spaces for wheelchairs are located in each carriage. Although
passengers in wheelchairs may board the train from any door, boarding
from the lead or tail carriage is recommended as these are usually less
crowded. Wheelchair-bound passengers should locate themselves between
the four stainless steel poles in the train.

2. Priority Seats

For elderly, pregnant or disabled passengers, priority seats are installed
in each carriage. To differentiate the priority seats from regular seats,
and to promote Metro etiquette and concern for those in need, "dark
blue priority seats" have been installed on all trains.
