Three new bullet train stations to open on Dec. 1

Taipei, Oct. 11 (CNA) Three new Taiwan high speed rail stations are slated to open for business on Dec. 1 and will be open to the public from Nov. 4, according to the Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation (THSRC). THSRC workers will provide visitors to the new facilities with a guided tour of their features and functions, the company said. Nine years after the north-south bullet train system started operations, residents of Miaolio, Changhua and Yunlin counties will finally be able to enjoy its services. Customers can pre-order "early bird" discount price tickets at THSRC station or online from Nov. 4. Tickets from Taipei to Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin will be NT$430 (US$13.30), NT$820 and NT$930, according to THSRC. A new train schedule will be announced in late October, including bullet trains stopping at the new stations every hour. In the future, journeys from Taipei to Zuoying (??) in Kaohsiung stopping at all 11 stations on the route, will take 138 minutes, an increase on the current travel time of 120 minutes. (By S.F.
