The shuttle services, which began on July 1, aim to provide tourists with easy travel in Taitung.
The buses run on four scenic routes: a NT$170 one-day Rift Valley route, a NT$250 one-day East Coast route, a NT$390 mountain and sea route package, and a NT$1200 mountain and sea route with Green Island package.
For those who are interested in rural countryside tours and hot air balloons, the Rift Valley route and the mountain and sea route package is the best option, the government suggested.
Meanwhile, those travelers who like to taste local delicacies, listen to live performances in the Tiehua Music Village, experience the unique lifestyle of a remote island, or just want to visit every place in Taitung, then the one-day East Coast route, and the mountain and sea route with Green Island package are the best options.
In addition, with the purchase of any of the two mountain and sea route packages, a sports towel worth NT$200 will be provided by the East Coast National Scenic Area for free.
The towels will be available at local traveler service centers, though supply is limited.
