【Kaohsiung News】With the COVID-19 pandemic slowing down in Kaohsiung City, public transportation ridership is rebounding gradually. To encourage citizens to use public transportation more, the Transportation Bureau has launched an event called "Free Masks and Drinks for Using Public Transportation." Staring August 26, from 07:00 a.m. on every Thursday, at the exits of eight major MRT stations, including Sanduo Shopping District Station, 50 sets of limited-edition medical grade face masks and drinks are being given out on a first come first served basis while sanitizing rubbing alcohol is provided to promote Kaohsiung iBus mobile app.
Director-General Chang Shu-chuan said that the surge of COVID cases that began at the end of this May resulted in the drastic decline in public transportation ridership. With the city government's efforts to improve public protection through vaccination and preventive measures, in August the public transportation ridership increased by 20%, with MRT ridership increasing by 20% and public bike by 30% when compared with the past June. Director-General Chang encouraged citizens to use public transportation more with the incentive of receiving the free gifts.
Even with the pandemic alert being lowered, the Transportation Bureau continues to strictly implement preventive measures in public transportation. In addition to asking public transportation operators to keep up with their cleaning and disinfecting practices, the Transportation Bureau also calls on passengers to always wear their masks and conduct contact-based registration via text messages.
The event of "Free Masks and Drinks for Using Public Transportation" is taking place from August 26 to November 25, 2021 from 07:00 a.m. on every Thursday. The event is held at Exit 3 of MRT Cultural Center Station, Exit 1 of Fongshan Station, Exit 2 of Daliao Station, the bus stop (Exit 4) of Siaogang Station, Exit 3 of Sanduo Shopping District Station, Exit 2 of Houyi Station, the bus stop (Exit 1) of Aozihdi Station, and Exit 1 of Gangshan South Station.
Passengers who take bus, MRT, or public bike to the stalls at these stations have the chance to get a free set of mask and drink after downloading iBus APP or clicking "like" on the tbkcdream Facebook page. On the days of the event, it will call it a day when all 50 sets of gifts are given out. The Transportation Bureau encourages the public to enthusiastically participate in the event.
