Tai-an Station (Chinese: 泰安車站; pinyin: Tài'ān Chēzhàn) is a railway station on the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) Taichung Line located in Houli District, Taichung, Taiwan. The current elevated station is not the first Tai-an Station nor is located at its original site. Due to the re-routing of the Western Line, the TRA closed the Tai-an Old Station on the Old Mountain Line and keeps it as a tourist and historical facility while transferring the actual transportation service to the new station.


Structure[edit]

Tai-an Station is an elevated train station, and the ticket vending machine is placed on the ground floor, and passengers go upstairs to the fifth floor to take the train. There is an elevator for use by those who are physically disabled. An island platform is located between the tracks at the station.
