Taiwan Railways (Taipei Main Station) 臺鐵臺北車站

Anchor point


Taipei Main Station is not only the most significant hub of transportation in northern Taiwan, but also the largest railway station in terms of the building scale and traffic volume. Situated in Zhongzheng District of Taipei City, it is an underground union station shared by three transportation service companies: Taiwan Railway Administration, Taiwan High Speed Rail and Taipei Metro. Thus, a passenger can get access to a train, a high-speed rail, MRT Bannan Line and MRT Tamsui–Xinyi Line at the station.

Taipei Main Station has been relocated and renovated numerous times since its establishment on July 5, 1891. The station building today was completed on September 2, 1989. It is also where the headquarters of Taiwan Railway Administration was set. As Taipei Metro and Taiwan High Speed Rail started operating, the Taipei City Mall, an extensive underground market, was gradually formed.

The whole area related to Taipei Main Station is as large as 46.31 hectares, including the nearby commercial district with businesses and learning institutions, Taipei Transit Station, MRT North Gate Station, Airport MRT Taipei Station, Huashan 1914 Creative Park and other places of the "Taipei Station Specific Area." It is undoubtedly the biggest hub of transportation in the Taipei–Keelung metropolitan area.

    Earning its keep


    Taipei Station earns its keep. Thousands of travellers pass through Taipei Station every day. You can access the Taoyuan International Airport MRT from here. The MRT Red Lne and Blue Lne have a junction here; they are two main MRT lines. Eateries and coffee shops abound in the area around Taipei Station. Tapei Station is a landmark, you can't miss it. Don't forget your EasyCard.

    Being our first time in Taipei we were amazed at the size of this station. Do take a moment to admire how big it is. We got lost a couple of times due to confusing signage however that only added to the holiday feel! Helpful staff were at hand.

    Faces in the crowd


    Taipei Main Station is always crowded -- the Metro (MRT), High Speed Rail and Taoyuan Airport MRT all go through it. here's also a lot of shopping. Give yourself plenty of time, it can be confusing.

    Station where all connectivity centralized


    Taipei Station is a very busy station where all the public transport interchange located. Airport MRT, train are in one building. Also, underground connected Express bus station and MRT stations such as Taipei Main and Beimen. It is also near to XimenTing area where lots of tourist went. Surrounding area have lots of big shopping malls, Airbnb, hotels, shops and restaurants. Underground Street Mall also under the Taipei Station. It is practically a shopping area as well!!
