Travel from Taoyuan Airport to Taipei - Taiwan

Taipei Main Station is busy and major station where you can connect from airport to Taipei City and other cities. You can connect to other cities by Taiwan Railway Administation (TRA), Taiwan High Speed Rail (HSR) and Taipei Metro from this station.

Taoyuan Airport has 2 terminals so please make sure that you go to the right terminal when you go back to airport.

1. Taoyuan Airport MRT (Train): There are two types of trains, Express Train and Commuter Train. Fare is NT$150  (both express train and commuter train).

Express Trains stop only some stations (A1 Taipei Station, A3 New Taipei Industrial Park, A8 Linkou Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, A12 Airport Terminal 1, and A13 Airport Terminal 2) so it takes only 35 minutes while commuter Trains stop all stations so it takes 50 minutes.
