Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) and Taiwan High Speed Rail (HSR) will resume serving food on their trains from June 7 as the COVID-19 outbreak eases, the operators announced Friday.

Passengers will be able to purchase lunchboxes and packaged snacks, as well as use vending machines on the trains wherever they are available, the TRA and HSR said.

However, passengers can only consume food if social distancing is observed, meaning they must remain at least 1.5 meters from anyone else, or if passengers near them wear masks, the TRA and HSR said.

In addition, passengers will still be required to wear a mask and have their temperature taken at the ticket barrier, but be allowed to take them off if they can maintain social distancing in the waiting area, platform or on board trains, the operators said.

TRA Puyuma and Toroko expresses will sell standing tickets during long holiday vacations from June 7, including the June 25-28 Dragon Boat Festival, it said.

However, standing tickets will be capped at 120 for each service, TRA added.
