Taking Pets on the Train

Taking Pets on the Train

Postby dumas » 20 Sep 2007, 11:53

http://www.forumosa.com/taiwan/viewtopic.php?t=63196

The post above lists links to the Taiwan Rail site: http://service.tra.gov.tw/en/

but I can't find any info about traveling with pets, at least not in the English section, but some of the sites internal links were screwed kup.

Anyone know restrictions and rules? To be specific, I have a dog. He is currently 10kg. but is still a puppy and I expect he will end up about 20kg.

Any info would be appreciated.

Unfortunately, there is no information about it in English on Taiwan Rail website.
According to its Chinese website, you should download registration form and fill it out, and check the train schedule that meet your need, but you can only take 自強號 (Ziqiang Hao) No. 1013, 1019, 1025, 1031, 1061, 1010, 1012, 1016 and 1032.
When you and your doggie start your journey, you have put your doggie in a cage whose size limitation is 170cm by length, width and height. With registration form, you have go to register your doggie in cage in luggage office of Taiwan Rail Stations of Hualian, Luodong, Yilan, Taipei, Taoyuan, Zhongli, Xinzhu, Maoli, Fengyuan, Taichung, Zhanghua, Jiayi, Xinying, Tainan and Kaohsiung. And you only can pick it up at the abovementioned stations.

You probably need someone who can speak Chinese to help you with it.


Sorry...I am too sick to translate it well.

Thanks. If I ever travel and get this sorted out I will post the details of my experience. If the limit is 170 cm in all directions, then anything smaller than a bear could travel.

Yes, 170cm, I checked it again. But the limitation of weight with doggie is 20kg. No Bears!

the 170cm would be cumulative ie. L + W + H, so I know for a fact our dog's crate is too big.

So for example, a crate could be 100x40x30=170 cm?

that's not as big as I thought at first, and a strange way to calculate. I knew that 170x170x170 seemed to big to be true, and cubic volume is way too small to be true (5.539658256754463 x 5.539658256754463 x 5.539658256754463 = 170).

I just guessed. It's the standard way they measure bags on Airlines too.

I just started a thread in Open with a similar question RE the HSR. I hadn't seen this thread. I guess a 42KG dog is a no go. That answers my question. :s

so going deeper into the topic... are cats easier to transport then?
any news about transporting them in the highway buses (like U-Bus), and High Speed Railway?
