As Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, is warming up to host the 2017 Summer Universiade, subway cars of Taiwan have been given a stunning makeover.
The subway cars of the Mass Rapid Transit system in Taiwan have been renovated to look like real sports venues. Swimming pools, basketball courts and race tracks are some of the themes which have been used in the cars. Out of these , the immersive swimming pool looks the best.
Floors of the cars have been the key focus of renovation, and each one is surprisingly realistic. The passengers who traveled in the remodeled subway cars just couldn’t hold their excitement and went ahead to explore the new floors.
The Tourism Bureau of Taiwan and EasyCard Corporation, the caretaker of public transportation system of Taiwan, took up the project and surprised people with incredible results.
Summer Universiade is the second biggest international sporting event after Olympics. The event is organized once every two years in a different city every time. It has 14 compulsory sports and 3 optional sports that the hosting country gets to choose. This year’s Summer Universiade will be the 29th one.
The newly decked up coaches will ply on the Songshan-Xindian (Green) line from August 19 to August 30, which is when the Summer Universiade will be going on. During these days, Taipei is expecting a large number of tourists in the city.
