Taiwan High Speed Rail

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 Zuoying. Moving among the corridor's stations at 300km per hour the fastest, THSR offers truly convenient rides.

Ticket Purchase

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.

Ticket Price and More

THSR offers three types of tickets: business car, standard car and non-reserved car. Both holders of business car and standard car tickets would have reserved seats. Those with non-reserved seats may choose any available seat in the non-reserved car on the date of travel. Early-bird discounts are provided, and so are periodic, 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. THSR Ticket Fares and Types
