Non-Stop Train?

We all seen videos of the subway commute in Japan.

Here's an example:

And I've also heard that the trains in Japan are always on time. It's never late. Of course Taiwan has to improve on this system and come up with a non-stop train!

So you get onto a little car that gets scooped up by a train? That can't be a smooth transition can it? You'd spill alot of coffee! Also if you travelled a longer distance you'd have to walk down into the train and then walk back up? In a packed train that wouldn't work. And how many times have you been on a train listening to music or gabbing to a friend and didn't quite notice that your stop is coming soon and rushed out of the train. Can't do that here! Or if a fat guy was in your way and you couldn't make it back up into the small car. You'd be stuck forever!

Not a good idea! I can predict alot of chaos, stress and fist fights! Not to mentions accidents! Hey if a roller coaster can run off the tracks, so can this!

Another idea some academic invented who's never taken a ride on a train during rush hour.
