Xinzuoying Station (TRA) or Zuoying Station (THSR and KMRT), is a major railway station served by Taiwan Railway Administration, Taiwan High Speed Rail, and Kaohsiung Mass Rapid Transit located in Zuoying District, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Passengers can transfer between TRA Western Line, KMRT Red Line, and THSR at this station,[4] and it is the only rail station in southern Taiwan where three rail systems converge. The station handles over 64,000 passengers daily on conventional rail, metro, and high-speed rail.[1][2][3]

Overview[edit]

The station is located at the eastern foot of Banpingshan (Chinese: 半屏山) in Kaohsiung, next to the South East Cement factory buildings.[5] In addition to rail routes, the station is also close to National Highway No. 1, 3, 10 and Provincial Highway No. 1 and 17.

On October 15, 2009, Shin Kong Mitsukoshi won a deal to lease a building at the station and turn it into a shopping complex under a 10-year operate-transfer (OT) contract for NT$505 million (US$15.6 million).[6] The new branch opened at the north-east corner of station on April 1, 2010. In June 2009, a folding bike rental station was set up at the MRT station to facilitate tourism in the city.[7] The station is also equipped with vehicle and motorcycle parking lots.[8]

Structure[edit]

The TRA and THSR parts are located in the above ground portion of the station, constructed together and opened for revenue service in January 2007 with the commencement of THSR service. As the current terminus of the line, the THSR part of the station has three island platforms serving 6 tracks. The TRA part of the station has 2 platforms serving 4 tracks, with one additional through track.

The KMRT portion of the station is a two-level station located underground,[9] at the northeastern part of the TRA/THSR station building.[5] The station has 2 exits[10] and opened for revenue service in March 2008. Dedicated exits between the KMRT station area to the TRA platforms allow direct transfer between TRA and KMRT trains. The KMRT part of the station has an island platform serving 2 tracks of the KMRT Red line.[9]
