Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (台灣桃園國際機場) (IATA: TPE) is the main international airport on the island, and the closest major airport to New Taipei. However, be aware that this name was only adopted in September 2006, the old name, Chiang Kai Shek International Airport (often abbreviated as CKS), is still commonly used. Airbus operates an express airport bus route that directly connects Taoyuan International Airport, Tucheng and Banqiao. The bus runs every 30 minutes during the day and costs NT$135. Travelers going to other regions of New Taipei however may have to visit Taipei city first, and head to the destination from there.

Banqiao (Banciao) Railway Station (板橋車站) is the major transportation hub in New Taipei. This station connects the railways, Taipei MRT and Taiwan High Speed Rail. It also has local and inter-city bus stations. (Wunhua Road Sec. 1, Banqiao City)
Inter-city buses arrive and depart from the Banqiao Railway Station's terminal. The inter-city bus terminal is just east of the Banqiao Railway Station, and the local bus terminal is in the west. Bus services are easily available, both to travel in the city and from or to nearby regions.
