Station overviewEdit

This two-level, underground station has an island platform and four exits.[2] The station is surrounded by government buildings and education institutions, serving mainly students and civil servants; thus, it remains relatively quiet for most of the day.

In 2010, the station was used for the filming of a scene for a Taiwanese romantic comedy film, Au Revoir Taipei (一頁台北). The station was emptied for filming and a train was arranged specifically for shooting.[3]

HistoryEdit

  • 31 August 2000: The station opened for revenue service.
  • March 2006: The station was a target of serial vandalism where three of its exits were found to have had their glass panels smashed.[4]

OperationsEdit

The station was formerly served by a shuttle service between Ximen and CKS Memorial Hall. Upon the opening of the Xinyi Line in November 2013, the shuttle was extended south to Taipower Building. Upon the opening of the Songshan Line in November 2014, the shuttle was replaced by trains running the full-length Green Line service between Songshan and Xindian.
