The Taipei Metro Zhongxiao Fuxing Station is located in the Da'an District in Taipei, Taiwan. It is a transfer station for the Wenshan Line/Neihu Line (Brown Line) and the Nangang Line (Blue Line).[2] It has a daily ridership of 100,852 passengers in June 2014,[3] making it the fourth busiest station on the network, behind Taipei Main Station,Ximen and Taipei City Hall.

Station overview[edit]

The station is a six-level underground/elevated structure: two levels are underground and connect to the Nangang Line platform while four levels are above ground and connect to the Wenshan Line platforms. The station has two side platforms, one island platform, and five exits. Wenshan Line platforms are equipped with platform screen doors and Nangang Line platforms are equipped with automatic platform gates. Washrooms are located inside and outside the paid area of the station.

The station is situated at the intersection of Zhongxiao East Road and Fuxing South Road. The station features four long escalators directly connecting the B3 concourse level with the third-floor platforms. It can be very crowded during rush hour due to its status as a major transfer station between two lines.[4]

Exit 2 is integrated with the Pacific SOGO Department Store (Fuxing Branch) as part of a joint development project.[5][6] It is the first business-oriented building based on a Taipei Metro joint development project.[7] In 2010, the station was awarded a "Superior" award at the 8th Golden Thumb Awards (sponsored by the Executive Yuan) for the joint development project.[8]

History[edit]

  • March 28, 1996: Opened for service along with the opening of the Muzha Line (now the Wenshan Line).
  • December 24, 1999: Became a major transfer station with the opening of the segment from Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall to Longshan Temple of the Nangang Line.
  • November 10, 2004: Pacific SOGO Department Store opened at Exit 4 as a joint development project.
  • June 19, 2006: The main connecting escalators gave off thick smoke, resulting in many trains bypassing the station.
