Taiwan High Speed Rail has made Taiwan’s public transport system more convenient, because it brings cities and towns closer. Today, passengers can even travel between Taipei and Kaohsiung in one day. Along the “Western Corridor” of Taiwan are 12 THSR stations: Nangang, Taipei, Banqiao, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Miaoli, Taichung, Changhua, Yunlin, Chiayi, Tainan and Zhuoying. Moving among the corridor’s stations at 300km per hour the fastest, THSR offers truly convenient rides.

There are a few ways to purchase a THSR ticket either of the day or for a later date, such as by the ticket counter or at a ticket vending machine. Payment may be made in cash or with a credit card. The customer may also purchase the ticket or print a pre-ordered ticket in most of the convenience stores in Taiwan. Please find the multi-media machine in the convenience store and follow instructions shown on the screen. Get the order sheet and have the ticket printed at the counter in 10 minutes, or otherwise the order will become invalid. Not that at convenience stores only cash payment is accepted.

THSR offers three types of tickets: business class, standard and non-reserved ones. Both holders of business-class and standard tickets would have reserved seats. Those with non-reserved seats may choose any available seat in the non-reserved cars on the date of travel. Early-bird discounts are provided, and so are multi-ride, senior citizens’ and children’s tickets. Each type of ticket is sold at a slightly different price. Please pay attention to the dates within which you must print your ticket. Pre-orders must be paid within three days.
After inserting the ticket, go through the ticket gate from its left. Go to the platform to wait for the train.
Stay at the waiting area before the train arrives.
When leaving the station, insert the ticket from the right of the gate. The ticket will not be returned this time.
