Through a new partnership with Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR), Avis will provide access to rental vehicles at six of THSR's eight stations in the western part of the country. Taiwan High Speed Rail runs approximately 214 miles along the west coast of Taiwan, from the national capital of Taipei to the southern city of Kaohsiung and transported more than 44 million passengers in 2012.

"We are focused on broadening our global footprint while maintaining strong margins," said Patric Siniscalchi, president, Latin America/Asia Pacific, Avis Budget Group.

The Avis locations along the THSR route will be located in Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Taichung, Chiayi, Tainan and Kaohsiung. With these six new rental facilities, Avis now operates a total network of 20 service points in Taiwan.
