The newest addition to Taipei City's efficient transportation system, the double decker 'Hop-On, Hop-Off' bus gives visitors a hassle-free way to tour the city by usage of a day pass for both the Red and Blue lines.
Gettting Around Taiwan
A common question that visitors may ask when visiting Taiwan is "if Taiwan is Taiwan, and China is China, then why do license plates say 臺灣省"?
This question is actually very easy to answer!
What is the Taipei Bus?
Taiwan's public transit system is extremely well developed, especially in Taipei where it covers practically every possible destination with relatively few transfers. Along with the Taipei MRT, the bus system accepts the EasyCard and provides an excellent, convenient way to get around the city.
The Taiwan Railway Administration (台灣鐵路管理局), commonly posted on signage as simply TRA is the main railway service in Taiwan, and provides convenient access to a large majority of locations all over Taiwan.
Be sure to arrive early for your scheduled train, as the layout of some stations is a bit awkward and the lack of clear signage sometimes makes it difficult to find the proper track.
Officially named the Taichung BRT Blue Line, the Taichung BRT runs along Taiwan Boulevard from the Taichung Train Station to Providence University.
The BRT system has been dismantled, however the stations are still being utilised.
Taichung BRT Blue Line is now Route #300.
