High-speed rail operations

THSRC operations adhere to the principle of providing passengers with safe and speedy transportation. After more than 15 years of effort, we have now become the transportation backbone of Taiwan's western corridor. THSRC provides intercity high-speed rail services via 12 stations: Nangang, Taipei, Banqiao, Taoyuan, Hsinchu, Miaoli, Taichung, Changhua, Yunlin, Chiayi, Tainan, and Zuoying, and we are constantly enhancing passenger services through service planning, promotional activities, and multiple ticket-purchase channels to expand market share. In 2023, epidemic prevention policies were gradually relaxed; the public learned to live with the virus and their lives returned to normal. Our ridership volumes recovered and even exceeded pre-pandemic levels. Passenger volumes reached 73.09 million in 2023, an increase of 34.95% compared to 2022. Starting on July 1, the number of weekly train runs was increased to 1,025 trains from 1,016 trains, and we added 14 trains starting on October 16, making a total of 1,039 weekly trains.
