Planned MRT Routes

Minsheng-Xizhi Line 

A feasibility study of the Minsheng-Xizhi line was approved by the Executive Yuan on December 2011. The line is to be built partly underground and will be partly elevated. It will start from Dadaocheng Harbour beneath Minsheng West Road in Taipei City, then run along Minsheng West and East roads, pass through Minsheng Community, and extend beneath the Keelung River to Neihu District, before changing to an elevated mode and ending at Xintai 5th Road in Xizhi District, New Taipei City. 

A comprehensive planning report of this line was submitted to the Ministry of Transportation and Communications for review, and has not yet been approved. The Minsheng-Xizhi line is planned to stretch a total of 17.4 km in length, and will have eight underground stations, seven elevated stations and one depot located at the Shehou area in Xizhi. 


Shezi, Shilin and Beitou Light Rail Transit Network 

An LRT system with two routes is recommended for the Shezi, Shilin, and Beitou areas. One line will run east to west across the study area and the other north to south across the study area. 

1. North-South Route 

This will run from Beitou through Zhoumei and Shezi along Chongqing North Road and end at the Xinzhuang line's Daqiaotou Station. The route will be about 9.1 km long and connect 10 stations and one depot. 

2. East-West Route 

According to the results, recommended by the Taipei City Department of Rapid Transit Systems and the Department of Urban Development, the east-west route will run from Shezi through Zhoumei along Fuguo Road and Zhongcheng Road before terminating near the Tianmu Baseball Stadium. The route will be about 7.5 km long and connect 11 stations and one depot.


Eastern Taipei North-South MRT System (Circular Line East Section) 

Stretching from the Circular line north section & south section, the eastern Taipei north-south MRT system (Circular Line East Section) will connect the Wenhu line, Songshan line, Bannan line and Xinyi line. It not only extends MRT services to the Wenshan area but also provides transfer services in order to construct a more complete MRT network, enhance the efficiency of mass transportation systems, and improve the traffic around the Neihu Science Park.

The results of the feasibility study are as follows:
Case of Ruiguang Rd: 13.12 km in length with 10 underground stations and one depot.
Case of Tiding Blvd: 12.23 km in length with 9 underground stations and one depot.
