History

During the construction of the Taipei MRT System, the Taipei City Department of Rapid Transit Systems (DORTS) provided for a training & activity center at the Beitou Depot for the training of MRT personnel. On July, 1997, upon the completion of the Tamsui Line, responsibility for the maintenance and management of the center was transferred to the Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) so that it can be used for employee education and training.

In the interests of effective utilization, giving back to residents along the MRT tracks, enhancing the image of TRTC services and revenue generation, the center was made available for public rental on July 14, 2002.

Training classrooms and trainee dormitories were consolidated in January, 2004, and resources not reserved for internal training were made officially available to businesses, organizations and groups for the hosting of training and development activities under the name of the "Beitou Resort".

The "Evacuation Experience Center" was established to fulfill the social responsibility of the TRTC and provide education on emergency evacuations from the MRT. The Evacuation Experience Center was opened to the public on June 3, 2008, to educate the public, schools and groups on disaster prevention and emergency evacuation from the MRT system using the learning through play format. It has now become a popular destination for the public and school excursions.
