Daan station platform 1

This station is a three-level, elevated station has two side platforms and two exits. It is located at the intersection of Fuxing South Rd. and Xinyi Rd. Five more exits have been constructed with the opening of Red Line.

The station is a two-level, underground station with an island platform.[6] Red Line trains from Beitou terminate here during non-rush hours.


The Red Line station is 347 m (1,138 ft) long and 25 m (82 ft) wide. Excavation depth is at 25 m (82 ft). It also has a 319 m (1,047 ft) pocket track, four entrances, two accessibility elevators, and three vent shafts.[6] One of the entrances and one of the vent shafts is integrated into a new joint development building. Another entrance and vent shaft is integrated into the existing joint development building on Brown Line.

Public ArtEdit

The Red Line station has a theme of "The meeting of light and shadow - a dialogue between ground level and underground". A combination of a horizontal passage which links the space and special illumination and lighting design on the escalators strengthens the directionality of the passage space.[6]
