Banqiao (Chinese: 板橋; pinyin: Bǎnqiáo)[10][11][12] is a railway and metro station in New Taipei, Taiwan served by Taiwan High Speed Rail, TRA and Taipei Metro. All tracks and platforms in the station are located underground. The station is served by the fastest HSR express services of the 1 series.

The current station building opened in 1999 for TRA, 2006 for Taipei Metro, and 2007 for HSR. The station currently handles over 77 million entries and exits per year. It will be joined by an elevated metro station of the Circular line by the end of 2018.

The three-level consists of a 25-story building above ground and 5 underground station stories; it is Taiwan's tallest station building. It includes platforms for the TRA, THSR, and Taipei Metro. The new station building was built as part of the Taipei Railway Underground Project to move railway lines in the city underground.

Public art[edit]

Titled "Evolution Orbit", the Taipei Metro platform has artwork consisting of 12 colorful rings affixed to columns on the platform.[13] These rings complete a cycle every hour and also move whenever a train enters the station.[14]
