TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Two Taiwan Tourist Shuttle (台灣好行) routes in Taoyuan will be replaced by new routes starting May 1.
This will enable passengers to “travel between transportation hubs and tourist attractions more quickly and conveniently,” Taoyuan’s Department of Tourism said on Friday (April 26).
The Cihu Route (慈湖線) will be replaced by the “Daxi Express Route”(大溪快線),which travels between Taiwan High Speed Rail (THSR) Taoyuan Station, Daxi, and Cihu, the department said. The bus will travel from the THSR Taoyuan Station to Daxi via an expressway, and a single trip to Cihu takes only about 40 minutes. A 1-day pass costs NT$130.
The Daxi route bus will service stops at Metrowalk Shopping Center, Indigenous Culture Center, Heping Old Street, Daxi Old Street, Daxi Mausoleum, and Cihu. The line, which is a daily service, will be made even friendlier for international passengers with a foreign language environment and an audio guide at visitor attractions, the department said.
