Route Extension of Line #75, #85, #242 and #246 to Jixing Community in Taiping since 5/1

To enhance bus transit services in Jixing Community, Taiping, the Taichung City Transportation Bureau coordinated with bus transit operators to extend services of Line # 75, #85, #242 and #246 since May 1st from the Yijiang Bridge to the Jixing Community, Taiping. On Xincheng Rd, two bi-directional stops, "Lide Academy" and "Jixing Community" were put to provide nearby residents transportation convenience. Additionally, the exterior space on Xincheng Rd. was utilized for drivers to make a u-turn for return journeys. Director General of the Transportation Bureau, Yeh Chao-Fu, pointed out that at present, buses from the Taping District to downtown Taichung mostly departed from Yijiang Bridge and thus, residents living on Xincheng Rd. had to ride a bus at Yijiang Bridge. In addition, most buses that depart from Yijiang Bridge stop at the Northern dike of Toubiankeng River where it is too narrow for a bus to make a u-turn for return journeys and the environment shall be improved. Hence, the Bureau negotiated with Ubus, All Day Bus and Sifang Bus to extend their bus service areas. At the same time, the Bureau assisted the Taping District Office to improve the route environment on Xincheng Rd. for bus operations, making a u-turn for return journeys and standby. These newly adjusted four lines connect popular sites including six hospitals, Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Chung Shan Medical University Hospital, Everan Hospital, Cender Hospital, CCRH and Aging Care Hospital, five elevated TRA Daqing, Wuquan, Taichung, Jingwu, and Taiyuan Stations and MRT Daqing and Nantun Station, Taichung Girls' Senior High School, Dongshan High School and Washington High School, National Taichung Theater, and ShowTimes Cinema in front of the Taichung Station.
