The first phase of Taipei Rapid Transit System was completed in the end of 1999 with a “十十” (literally translated as Double Ten in Chinese language) shaped network-structure. As a critical concern for passengers’ convenience, the shuttle-bus transfer facility was reviewed and planed thoroughly. A well-planned bus transfer facility not only ensures the safe and convenient transfer-services for the passengers, but also improves the traffic condition and upgrades the efficiency of the city buses in the neighborhood. As such, the planning of TRTS’ bus transfer facility is undoubtedly a critical issue for all parties concerned. This research studied the types of buses of all stations along Tamshui Line rapid transit as well as the impact of influence imposed by the buses. Based on the levels of significance of the TRTS stations, this research conducted the factor analysis for the categorized variables of the stations by the factor analysis method, which is a part of the multiple variable analysis approach, then conducted the cluster analysis for the points of the sampling factors and defined the distances by Euclid’s definition of square distance, and then categorized the stations by Watt’s method. The next step was to determine how the bus facilities of Tamshui Line rapid transit were allocated according to the relation between all categories of TRTS stations and the buses, then reviewed and analyzed the shuttle-bus transfer facilities of all stations along Tamshui Line rapid transit in order to present the recommendations for improvement.
