[Reporter Yang Xinhui/Taipei Report] Taipei MRT Wenhu Line Liuzhangli Station towards the zoo could not drive automatically at 8:31 this morning, Nanjing Fuxing Station to Linguang Station was suspended, causing many commuters to be late, affecting about 10,000 people A passenger, Taipei City Councilor Wang Xinyi reviewed the data and found that the operating cost budget compiled by Beijie this year exceeded 18.1 billion. From the statistics in 2018 to today, the number of faults on the Wenhu Line has reached 73. Wang Xinyi Angrily criticized, the MRT should be held accountable Bureau and Beijie Company are responsible, otherwise this accident will not be the last.
A train in the direction of the zoo from Liuzhangli Station on the Wenhu Line cannot travel automatically. The longest delay is about 28 minutes. Wang Xinyi said that the abnormality of the Wenhu Line has become a "common occurrence". The transportation route is old and has many failures, so it is necessary to strengthen the maintenance. However, it is obvious that the Beijie Company and the MRT Bureau have no intentions, and they did not really spend the money on the knife edge.

Wang Xinyi believes that Beijie has frequent accidents and the company's poor ability to respond to crises, which is obviously human negligence. Although Beijie has identified the cause of the failure as "abnormal auxiliary power equipment", it is not just "knowing why". Only by finding out the reasons for the abnormality of electrical equipment can the problem be truly solved, and the relevant negligent personnel and contractors shall be held accountable.
The Beijie Company pointed out that the maintenance personnel had conducted preliminary inspections. The train was suspended due to the abnormal auxiliary power equipment and the automatic protection device of the train was activated. Passengers who left the station early or did not take the train after entering the station due to this abnormality can contact the station for handling. Taipei MRT apologises for any inconvenience caused to passengers by refunding or correcting e-ticket information.
