*Highway Bus

Taiwan’s long-distance highway buses are mostly run by private companies such as Kuo-Kuang Motor Transport, Ubus, Southeast Bus, Aloha Bus and Ho-hsin Bus. These buses take passengers to all parts of Taiwan through national and provincial highways.

Many buses depart daily, traveling among the country’s major cities. It is therefore a convenient transport to take. Some routes even operate 24 hours a day. Besides, the cost is usually cheaper than taking a flight or a train. All such makes highway bus a heavily utilized transport means in Taiwan. For safety reasons, however, please do not take any bus offered by an unregistered company.

A highway bus trip allows one to relax and enjoy the scenery along the way, and even get to know the local lifestyle more. Generally speaking, no reservations are needed for non-rush hour buses. During holidays, including the New Year vacation, as well as when highway traffic gets congested, it is recommended to book tickets in advance or simply choose another transport, just to save time.
