United Bus Taichung Harbor Road Transfer Station and its parking problems have been bothering the city government and the local residents. On August 15, Transportation Bureau Director General Lin Liang-Yai, the Police Department’s Xie He Patrol Station and the Deputy Station Master of the United Bus Taichung Harbor Road Transfer Station went along to inspect the traffic flow and parking problems, so as to make short term and interim improvement proposals.
Transportation Bureau Director General Lin Liang-Yai pointed out that, ever since the United Bus Transfer Station was moved to their new Taichung Harbor Road location, it made a huge improvement to the ChaoMa area that was very crowded. What usually took two traffic light cycles to move, now only takes one cycles between LiMing Road and Taichung Harbor Road. Since the transfer station has been moved, illegal parking and illegal use of the streets has reduced a great deal in the surrounding area. The Transportation Bureau is very pleased with the work of United Bus Company. However, with the transfer station’s reallocation, new problems of motorcycle parking and large vehicles entering and exiting the area. It is necessary to consider new strategies for this situation.
The Transportation Bureau expressed that once all necessary information has been gathered, bureau agents will be sent to do further inspection next week, so that Taichung citizens can enjoy a safe and comfortable environment when they take the bus.
