HSR Taichung (Chinese: 台中; pinyin: Táizhōng) is a railway station in Taichung, Taiwan served by Taiwan High Speed Rail with a connection to Xinwuri Station for TRA services. It is served by the fastest express services of the 1 series.

Overview[edit]

The station is elevated and has two island platforms. There are a total of 10 exits for the station. It is the farthest station by distance from adjacent stations, going as far south (85.9 km (53.4 mi)) to Chiayi and as far north (93.5 km (58.1 mi)) to Hsinchu.[2]

History[edit]

  • October 24, 2006: The station opened for service.
  • January 5, 2007: The segment from Banciao to Zuoying opens for service. The station becomes a stopping station.

Prior December 2015, this was the only operational high speed rail station in Central Taiwan before any additional stations become operational, which made this station the most isolated of all THSR stations. The distance to the north to Hsinchu is 93 km, and south to Chiayi is 85 km.
