Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System Contruction Project:::

Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is the key portal to international communities. One important sign for being a developed country is her capability to provide airport passengers with a safe, convenient, comfortable and high quality transit service.

As one item of the government-funded “i-Taiwan 12 Projects”, this airport link transit system Project will connect the Taoyuan International Airport with surrounding transportation hubs such as Taipei Main Station, High Speed Rail Taoyuan Station, etc. so that international airlines may tie closely to the local transportation web.

This Project can also stimulate prosperity along the route in coordination with the existing urban developments, to reach a more balanced city vs. countryside status.

The total budget for this Project is roughly NT$113.85 billion


The Project starts from Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Terminal II, which goes eastward to Terminal I, then passes through villages and townships of Lujhu, Linkou, Gueishan, Sinjhuang, Taishan, Sanchong into Taipei City, while southward goes through High Speed Rail Taoyuan Station to Jhongli City. The total route length is approximately 51.03 km, including the underground section about 10.92 km and the elevated section about 40.11 km. There are 22 stations, of which 15 elevated and 7 underground, and 2 maintenance depots, i.e. Chingpu and Luchu.



To meet demands of different passengers, the Project will provide two respective services with Express Trains and Commuter Trains:
The Express Train with fast and fewer-stop services are specially provided for airport passengers from Station A1 in central Taipei City, which will stop at Station A3 New Taipei Industrial Park, Station A8 ChangGung Hospital, Station A12 Airport Terminal I, Station A13 Terminal II, and finally Station A14 Terminal III.

The Commuter Train services, which are designed for commuters, will use the same rail route as of the Express Train and stop at each station. It is expected that most of the airport staff and the commuters to Taipei City will take such services.

During the initial stage of operation, services will be provided with the headway of 10 minutes for one Express Train and one Commuter Train. The Express Train running time from Taipei Main Station to Taoyuan Airport will be about 35 minutes, and Commuter Train from Taipei Main Station to Jhongli will take about 70 minutes.
1.The Phase 1, Sanchong to Jhongli section, is scheduled to begin revenue service in 2015.
2.The revenue service of phase 2, Sanchong to Taipei section, will begin revenue service in 2015.

The overall completion rate was 93.74% as of the end of Aug 2014.

The MRT's 22 stations include 15 elevated stations and seven underground stations. The system also includes the Chingpu and Lujhu maintenance depots.

In-Town Check-In and Porter Service
The In-Town Check-In and Porter Service will be provided at Stations A1, A3 and A18. In so doing, the airline check-in counters at the airport are moved to downtown area and the stations in city center become part of the airport. Passengers can thus forward baggage and get boarding pass ahead of time.

Project Benefit

With the completion of the Project, a rail transportation system will connect Taoyuan International Airport with HSR/TRA stations as well as Taipei Rapid Transit lines including Danshui and Nangang/Banqiao, also the forthcoming Xinzhuang Line and Circular Line. Such a compound transportation system will be more comprehensive and more convenient.

It will only take about 35 minutes for the express train of the Airport Link Transit System from Station A1 (Taipei Main Station) to Taoyuan International Airport. Not only the traveling time to the airport is reduced, but also freeway traffic flow will thus go down with less social costs like oil consumption, air pollution, etc. The In-Town Check-In service will conveniently let airline passengers earlier forward baggage and get boarding pass right at the moment, so that they may keep shopping around or doing business without carrying heavy luggage.

Upon revenue operation of the transit system, the overall values and benefits of the land peripheral to the stations and the route will be highly promoted through joint multiple-purpose development.
