Station overviewEdit

 
Songshan Airport station exit 3

This four-level, underground station features an island platform and three exits.[2][3] The station is 150 meters long, 20 meters wide, and is accessible from Songshan Airport via a 42-meter long underground cross passage.[3][4] This station along with Dazhi station are the only underground medium-capacity stations on the Taipei Metro. They are also the first underground stations in the system to have platform doors.

In addition to developing food facilities in the underground passage connecting the station to the airport, an "airport library" will also be opened.[5]

From 30 March 1936 until 1976, there was also a Songshan Airport station located on the now-defunct TRA Songshan Airport Line which was linked to Songshan Station by an intermediate station (Songshan Power Plant Station), but the TRA station was built at a different location from the present Metro station.
