  1. Origin: due to the fast development of the metropolitan area of Taoyuan and the rapid growth of the number of rail passengers, transport service facilities have been inadequate. According to the 2006 statistics, the number of passengers getting on or off trains at Taoyuan Station and Zhongli Station ranked second and third, respectively among all stations. For that reason, it is necessary to improve the railway in the Taoyuan metropolitan area.
  2. Purposes: the underground railway will link the both sides of the railway together, enable urban development to become more balanced, make land use more efficient, and present a renewal opportunity for the old development center.
  3. Benefits: this project takes account of the future Taoyuan public transportation system planning, cooperating with the original urban core development and connecting Taoyuan District with Zhongli District for the industrial life development belt. Overall, the underground railway is the mainstream public opinion of the city, the engineering technology is feasible, the economic benefit is greater than the cost, and the urban landscape can be improved.
