TAIPEI–The Taipei City Government unveiled Friday the design of a fleet of eight double-decker
buses that will hit the road for tourists by the end of this year.
A model of the double decker bus was unveiled when the city government signed an agreement with San Chung Bus Co., which will work with Sampu Travel Service and the e-go transportation group to operate two tourist bus routes.
The buses will have 49 seats on the upper level, the back half of which will be open-top, and 10 seats on the lower level, according to the city’s Department of Information and Tourism.
The two routes will take visitors to attractions in the city, such as Taipei 101, Ximending and the National Palace Museum, on two-hour trips that have been planned and await regulators’ approval, the department said.
The maximum ticket price is expected to be set at NT$300 (US$9.27) per trip, the department added. [FULL STORY]
