The bus service dubbed "the Tainan Express" will be suspended indefinitely beginning April 1, as nearly 85 percent of all flights arriving and departing from Kaohsiung International Airport have already been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, the city's Tourism Bureau said in a press release.
It is estimated that very few passengers will use the express service in the near future as the central government has since March 19 barred most foreign nationals from entering the country, and required all arrivals who do enter the country, regardless of nationality, to go into self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, the bureau noted.
Those who have already booked a ticket for the bus service after April 1 will be given a full refund and those who have further questions can call 0800-889-116, it added. [FULL STORY]
