Taoyuan Metro (formerly Taoyuan Rail Transit and officially Taoyuan Mass Rapid Transit System) is a proposed rapid transit system for the Taoyuan area in Taiwan.[1] The proposed network will consist of five lines. A section of Blue Line has merged into the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport Access MRT System and is under construction, while the surplus is still in the planning phase.

Lines and stations[edit]

All lines will use standard gauge track, with the exception of the Red Line which will use 3 ft 6 in (1,067 mm) track as it will use the right-of-way of a part of the TRA Western Line. The Taolin Line segment of the Brown Line from Taoyuan to Shanbi is intended to be built as a bus rapid transit route.

Construction[edit]

In March 2011, the Bureau of High Speed Rail, which oversees construction of the project, announced that the 11.4 km (7.1 mi)-long elevated structure from Dayuan Station (A15) to Xingnan Station (A20) had been completed.[2] The rest of the Taoyuan Line passed an environmental impact assessment in July 2014. Construction is expected to last from June 2015 to 2019.[3]
