Overview[edit]

The underground station has two side platforms. The Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation signed contracts with both China Airlines and EVA Air for preferential services at this station for the two airlines' outbound passengers.[5] Twenty-two hectares of land around the station are slated for commercial and manufacturing development, with the goal of developing the area into an international commercial city.[6]

In the future the station will also connect to the Taoyuan Airport MRT (scheduled to begin service in 2014) and the planned Taoyuan MRT network. The station will be elevated with one island platform and one side platform.
