Badu Station (Chinese: 八堵車站; pinyin: Bādǔ Chēzhàn; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Peh-tó͘ Chhia-chām) is a railway station at the junction of the Taiwan Railways Administration West Coast line and the Yilan line. It is the western terminus of the Yilan line and is located in Nuannuan District, Keelung, Taiwan.

History

The station was opened in 1899, during Japanese rule. In April 1914, the rail line from Keelung to Haccho (Badu) was completed. The station has served as an important transfer point between the West Coast line and the Yilan line since 1919, when the first segment of the Yilan line was built in the same year. The current station building was completed in 1986, and a memorial to the victims of the February 28 Incident was unveiled outside the station in 1994. Now it is one of the busiest stations in southern Keelung, with more than 5,000 passengers per day as of 2014.
