The Clockwork Orange: Taipei Metro Xinzhuang and Luzhou lines open!

The Taipei Metro’s Orange line received two new additions this week with the opening of the Luzhou branch line from Luzhou to Daqiaotou, and the Xinzhuang line from Daqiaotou to Zhongxiao Xinsheng. As you can see from the map below, this doesn’t yet link up with the existing part of the Orange Line from Nanshijiao to Guting. The gap from Guting to Zhongxiao Xinsheng will be completed in June 2011, with an intermediate station at Dongmen.

We’ve prepared an update for our Taipei Metro iPhone app (including retina display) and it should be available in the next week!
