It is so easy and convenient to visit the Alishan with Taiwan Tourist Shuttle! There are two routes at the moment. Route A departs from THSR Chiayi Station and Route B from Chiayi Train Station. The shuttle buses for both routes stop at Dingliu Elementary School, Wufong Temple, Liming Elementary School, Longmei, Xiding, Longtou, Shizhao, Shizi Village and Alishan. We guarantee that you will be amazed by these places along Provincial Highway 18!
In fact, Taiwan Tourist Shuttle’s Alishan Route A is the only direct transport to the Alishan from THSR Chiayi Station. This seamless transport makes traveling to the Alishan much more convenient. In 2012 alone, there were as many as 11,151 passengers taking Alishan Route A from THSR.
