Zhongxiao Fuxing is a station of Taipei Metro in Taipei, Taiwan on the Brown and Blue lines.[2] It is one of the busiest, with a daily ridership of 100,928 passengers 2016.[3]

Station overview[edit]

The station has both underground and elevated sections: two levels are underground (servicing Blue Line) and four levels above ground (servicing Brown Line). The station has two side platforms, one island platform, and five exits. Brown Line platforms are equipped with platform screen doors and Blue Line platforms are equipped with automatic platform gates. Washrooms are located inside and outside the paid area of the station.

The station is situated at the intersection of Zhongxiao East Road and Fuxing South Road. The station features four long escalators directly connecting the B3 concourse level with the third-floor platforms. These escalators handle 96,000 transferring passengers daily.[4] On 31 March 2017, Taipei Metro Corporation announced that escalator speeds would be increased from 0.5 m/s (1.6 ft/s) to 0.65 m/s (2.1 ft/s), increasing carrying capacity by 30%.[4] The station can be very crowded during rush hour due to its status as a major transfer station between two lines.[5]

Exit 2 is integrated with the Pacific SOGO Department Store (Fuxing Branch) as part of a joint development project.[6][7] It is the first business-oriented building based on a Taipei Metro joint development project.[8] In 2010, the station was awarded a "Superior" award at the 8th Golden Thumb Awards (sponsored by the Executive Yuan) for the joint development project.[9]
