It is the terminal station of the Tamsui Line. The location of the station can be traced back to the same-named station of the now-defunct TRA Tamsui Line.

The two-level, elevated station has an island platform and two exits. The station is situated between the south side of Zhongzheng West Road and west of the Zhongshan-Zhongzheng Road intersection. Restrooms are located inside the main entrance area.
