Yangmei Station (Chinese: 楊梅車站; pinyin: Yángméi Chēzhàn) is a railway station on the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) West Coast Line located in Yangmei District, Taoyuan City, Taiwan.

History[edit]

The second-generation station building in July 2007

The original station was first opened in 1893 as Tochongxi (頭重溪) station. It was moved to a new location on July 20, 1899 and renamed Yangmeili (楊梅壢停車場) and eventually to its current name in 1920. A new concrete station building was built in 1929. Taiwan Easy Go contactless smart card faregates were installed at this station on March 26, 2010. New elevated platforms as well as the third-generation station building were opened in 2010 and 2011 respectively.

Structure[edit]

There are two island platforms. Another entrance and an overpass connecting the two entrances of the station are currently being built.

Service[edit]

As a minor station, Yangmei Station is primarily serviced by Local Trains. The Tzu-Chiang Limited Express does not stop at this station.
