A feasibility study of the Minsheng-Xizhi line was approved by the Executive
Yuan on December 2011. The line is to be built partly underground and will be
partly elevated. It will start from Dadaocheng Harbour beneath Minsheng West
Road in Taipei City, then run along Minsheng West and East roads, pass through
Minsheng Community, and extend beneath the Keelung River to Neihu District,
before changing to an elevated mode and ending at Xintai 5th Road in Xizhi
District, New Taipei City.
A comprehensive planning report of this line was submitted to the Ministry of
Transportation and Communications for review, and has not yet been approved. The
Minsheng-Xizhi line is planned to stretch a total of 19.63 km in length,
including a 17.4 km main line and a 2.23 km branch line, and will have eight
underground stations, ten elevated stations and one depot located at the Shehou
area in Xizhi.
Shezi, Shilin, and Beitou Light Rail Lines
An LRT system with two routes is recommended for the Shezi, Shilin, and
Beitou areas. One line will run east to west across the study area and the other
north to south across the study area.
1. North-South Route
This will run from Beitou through Zhoumei and Shezi along Chongqing North Road
and end at the Xinzhuang line's Daqiaotou Station. The route will be about 9.1
km long and connect 10 stations and one depot.
2. East-West Route
According to the results, recommended by the Taipei City Department of Rapid Transit Systems
and the Department of Urban Development, the east-west
route will run from Shezi through Zhoumei along Fuguo Road and Zhongcheng Road
before terminating near the Tianmu Baseball Stadium. The route will be about 7.5
km long and connect 11 stations and one depot.
Circular Line North Section & South Section
The Circular line North Section & South Section is part of the Circular line,
and is regarded as Circular line Phase II. A feasibility study of the Circular
line North Section & South Section was approved by the Executive Yuan on
November 2014.The South section is 5.6 km in length with six underground
stations and the North section is 14.9 km in length with 12 underground stations

Xinzhuang line's Huilong Station. The 13.3-kilometer route will have two
underground stations and 11 elevated stations.
Eastern Taipei North-South Rail System
Eastern Taipei North-South rail system will connect the Wenhu line, Songshan
line, Bannan line and Xinyi line, not only extending operation services to the
Wenshan area but also providing transfer services in order to construct a more
complete MRT network, enhance efficiency of the mass transportation systems, and
improve the traffic around the Neihu Science Park. In accordance with the Mass
Rapid Transit Act, a feasibility study for this plan will be undertaken and then
submitted to the central government for approval. Upon completion of the
aforementioned operations, the subsequent tasks including a comprehensive
planning, environmental impact assessment, urban rezoning, land acquisition, and
design and construction will proceed.
