Taipei, Nov. 1 (CNA) A group of fans of Greyhound passenger coaches, which began public transportation services in Taiwan under the name of Kuo Kuang (國光號) over 30 years ago, continued a nostalgic trip through Nantou County in central Taiwan Sunday on one of the iconic coaches, creating a stir among local residents who saw it.
The group of 20-plus members was part of a bigger group of over 100 Greyhound fans, who kicked off a trip the previous day, traveling from Taipei to Sun Moon Lake, a tourist attraction in the land-locked county, aboard three Kuo Kuang buses, to bid a fond farewell to the much-loved vehicles, which are being taken out of service.
One of the coaches, rented by the diehard fans, continued the journey in Nantou, where Greyhounds have not been in service since the end of September last year. [FULL STORY]
