Taipei Metro Highlights Issue of Possessions Blocking Doors|北捷車門若卡住 半數係隨身小物造成

Taipei Metro is an important commuting tool in the greater Taipei area. Recently, Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation analyzed the reasons why metro car doors are unable to successfully close. It found that over half of the incidents were caused by personal possessions, especially hanging bag ornaments.

The Taipei Metro train enters the station, and passengers get on and off. At times, metro car doors are unable to successfully close. Many of these incidents are caused by small items that passengers carry with them. Taipei Metro workers have fished out everything from hanging bag ornaments to eyebrow pencils to batteries from sliding door grooves. Taipei Metro says sometimes personal possessions fall into the grooves, causing the doors to jam. In 2018, there were 65 incidents of doors operating abnormally. Over 50 percent were caused by "foreign objects." People should be especially careful with their hanging bag ornaments.

You can attach (the card case) to your bag, and then stretch it out to swipe your card. It could end up being dangerous though.

Sometime you rush into the car, but your bag is behind you.

When doors are unable to close, station personnel will immediately come to assess the situation. They use hooks to remove objects from door grooves. If they are not able to remove objects, all passengers aboard the train may have to disembark and take the next train.

Fifty percent of the incidents are caused by foreign objects getting stuck. Sometimes passengers lean on doors, and their personal possessions fall into the door grooves when they are taking them out, affecting the opening and closing of the doors.

Taipei Metro reminds passengers to take care when getting on and off the metro. They should hand carry their backpacks as they enter carriages and move towards the interior and stay away from the doors to prevent objects from falling into door grooves.

捷運列車進站,旅客陸陸續續上下車,不過有時車門會發生異常無法順利關上。娃娃吊飾、眉筆、電池,這些玲瑯滿目的小東西,這些都是從捷運車門溝槽裡取出來的。北捷指出,有時是因為旅客隨身物品掉落門縫,導致車門卡住,去年總共有65件車門異常,有五成以上是「車門卡異物」,尤其包包上的小吊飾要特別小心。

民眾表示:「可以連在這個(包包)上面,拉出來就可以刷卡的(卡套),那個有時候還滿危險的。」

民眾表示:「因為你還沒進去,(包包)它在後面啊,就是趕快進門,趕快進捷運門。」

一旦「車門異常」無法順利關上,站務人員立即上前查看,使用勾子排除捷運車門溝槽的異物,如果當下無法順利排除,恐怕影響全部列車旅客必須下車,改搭下一車。

北捷站務處第一運務中心副主任 林俊旭表示:「50%的事件,是因為卡住異物而造成的,當然旅客在靠近車門,有時候過度倚靠,那可能隨身物品,或者是在掏取東西的時候,可能也會造成,隨身物品掉落車門溝槽,影響車門關閉。」
