Asian-American Solo Traveler Airport – Taipei | Transportation Modes

There are many transportation options between Taoyuan International Airport and Taipei city center.

Taxi

Taxi’s are the easiest to spot from anywhere, but they are not the cheapest. If you cannot speak Chinese, it is best to print the Chinese address out or save it on your phone. In Taipei, I found that fares are around NT$1000 (~$33 USD) to get from the airport to Taipei Main Station.

Uber

Uber can sometimes be cheaper than Taxis. You will need data to call an Uber, so it’s best to buy a Data SIM Card at the airport. Fares are around NT $750-$800 ($24-$26 USD).

Airport MRT / Shuttle Bus

The Airport MRT and Shuttle Bus are the cheapest options to go between Taipei city and Taoyuan International Airport. The best way to ride the MRT and Shuttle Bus is to buy an Easy Card from any MRT Station. After you deposit cash onto the card, it allows you to ride the any public transportation without having to buy tickets each time. A MRT ride from Terminal 1 & 2 to Taipei Main Station costs roughly NT$160 (~$5 USD). Shuttle buses cost the same amount as the MRT, but they stop at various stops around the city.
