Taoyuan Airport Skytrain

Sky train at the Taoyuan International Airport, Taiwan

I've ridden the HSR, MRT and TRA, but there was still one train system in Taiwan that I had yet to ride. It was the skytrain at the Taoyuan International Airport. I was at the airport today and had some free time so I thought I would take a ride and take some photos too. 

Skytrain travels between terminals at Taoyuan Airport, Taiwan

This little two carriage train shuttles passengers between Terminals One and Two of the airport.

The cars are self-guided running on concrete tracks, much like the Muzha line of the Taipei MRT.

And here is a view inside the carriage. As the journey between the two terminals only takes a couple of minutes it is barely necessary to sit down.

  1. Maybe it’s the way the seating in configured, but the interior looks much wider than the new Neihu trains.

  3. i like the airport skytrains but it’s a bit of a long walk to get to them and can be a bit tiresome if you are hauling some luggages with you

  4. I think the train system at Taoyuan airport is modelled after Changi,Singapore.Both will bring you to the transfer desks of either terminals in double quick time so that paxs having transfers/connections can expedite their check-in process before boarding.
