Taiwan Surprises Passengers By Turning Subway Cars Into Different Sport Venues For Upcoming Universiade

Taipei City, the capital of Taiwan, is gearing up to host the 2017 Summer Universiade. To disperse the hype, then they handed the subway cars of their Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system a makeover — by turning them to shockingly realistic simulations of game places.

The decoration of each subway car was concentrated mostly on the flooring, which now resemble swimming pools, football fields, race tracks, and basketball courts. It’s a project managed by EasyCard Corporation, that synchronizes public transport throughout Taiwan, along with the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan. You may get those decked out cars over the Songshan-Xindian (Green) line, a central MRT route.

The Universiade is that the second-largest global sporting event after the Olympics. Back in 2011, the International University Sports Federation voted overwhelmingly to Taipei to host the matches, beating out Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. The Summer Universiade will run from August 19th to the 30th, and Taipei will be hoping to find a huge boom in tourism during this time period.
