TAOYUAN AIRPORT MRT FARES SET, UP TO NT$160|機場捷運公布票價 台北車站-桃機160元

The Taoyuan International Airport MRT is set to commence operations after the Chinese New Year. The ticket prices have also been announced. A one-way ticket from the Taipei Main Station to the Taoyuan International Airport will cost NT$160. For local commuters, 30, 60, and 90-day periodic tickets will be available, offering up to 40% discounts.

The construction of the Taoyuan International Airport MRT is finally complete after over 20 years. The airport mass transit system will be operational after the Chinese Year, with ticket prices ranging from NT$30 to NT$160. A ticket from Taipei Main Station to Taoyuan International Airport will be NT$160, slightly higher than the bus fare, NT$125, and lower than the high-speed rail, which costs NT$190.

==MEMBER OF PUBLIC==
(A ticket from Taipei Main Station to Taoyuan International Airport will be NT$160. Do you think that's acceptable?) Yes.

==MEMBER OF PUBLIC==
It's a bit expensive. I don't think I'll take it.

The Taoyuan International Airport MRT is 51 km long and the first public transit system that connects three metropolitan areas: Taipei City, the New Taipei City, and Taoyuan City. There will be express trains and regular trains that stop at each station to service both air travelers and local residents along the line. Commuters can purchase periodic tickets and enjoy 30%, 35%, or 40% discounts.

==CHENG WEN-TSAN, Taoyuan City Mayor==
The system will begin operations after the Chinese New Year. During the first month, free trial rides will be offered. From the second month onward, tickets will be 50% off so that people can experience the convenience of the Airport MRT.

==LIU KUN-I, Taoyuan Metro Chairman==
The 90-day season ticket gets a 40% reduction, a very favorable discount. It's also refundable if the total amount is not used up.

According to Taoyuan Metro estimates, the initial number of passengers is 46,000 and considering the costs, the ticket price from Taipei to Taoyuan should be NT$270. With the current NT$160 ticket price, it will take 102,000 passengers to break even. Taoyuan Metro said ticket prices are designed to be both competitive and sustainable in the market.

機場捷運確定農曆年後正式通車。而機場捷運票價也在今天出爐,從台北車站到桃園機場的票價是160元,另外,也將針對通勤族提出30天、60天和90天的定期票7折到6折不等優惠。


機場捷運從開始興建到現在,超過20年,確定農曆年後正式通車。而機場捷運票價也已經出爐,最低票價30元,最高160元,以台北車站到桃園機場為例要160元,介於國道客運125元,和高鐵轉接駁車190元之間,而民眾對於票價反應不一。

==民眾==
(從台北火車站坐機場捷運)
(坐到桃園機場票價160元)
(你覺得可以接受嗎) 160可以呀

==民眾==
有點貴 不太考慮

機場捷運全長51公里,是台灣第一條跨過台北、新北和桃園三個都會區的運輸系統,分為直達車與站站停的普通車,除了服務機場出入境旅客,也服務沿線通勤民眾,而針對通勤族,桃捷提出定期票30天7折、60天65折和90天6折不等的優惠。

==桃園市長 鄭文燦==
(農曆)過年後就會通車
在通車的時候
會有一個月的團體(免費)試乘
營運後的第一個月
會採取5折的方案
讓大家可以體會到
機場捷運的方便

==桃捷公司董事長 劉坤億==
季票(90天)的話是打到6折
所以實際上是非常優惠
如果沒有用完的話呢
它是可以退費的

而桃捷公司預估機捷初期運量4萬6千人,計算出來的票價從A1台北站到機場價格高達270元才符合營運成本,以現行160元票價要達到10萬2千人運量營運才能達到平衡,桃捷表示票價訂定必須兼顧市場競爭和永續經營。
