The Taichung City Transportation Bureau continuously built the brand values of Taichung City buses by recognizing drivers who have done a great job. The "2021 Golden Transport Awards Ceremony" was held today (the 21st) and the Director General of the Transportation Bureau, Yeh Chao-Fu, presented awards to drivers who received the most votes online and were devoted to services to show his appreciation for their selfless contributions. Additionally, 27 drivers of public bus were also recognized and that brought the total number of drivers who received special honors to 33 to encourage service improvement and building of a friendly and convenient mass transportation environment. According to Director General Yeh, in order to build Taichung into a low carbon city and improve air quality, the Taichung City Government continuously implemented policies such as Double Ten Bus, exclusive incentives for Taichung citizens, introduction of electric buses and i-door to encourage the public to use mass transportation. The bus networks were also expanded. Since drivers of public buses are the unknown heroes behind the promotion and practice of transportation policies, this Ceremony especially included the category in Best Online Popularity to allow riders of public buses to vote for their best drivers via the internet and app on smartphones and to hear public opinion. There was also the category of Meritorious Service to recognize good drivers publicly. Winners are the model of best drivers to improve both service quality and driving safety.

Due to the impact of the pandemic this year, the infinity symbol shows unlimited transportation. Two Circles and the infinity symbol make a bow, a lucky symbol, to pray for smooth transportation operations.
