Free Taxis Launched to Replace Weekday Off-Peak Bus Services

To improve the low ridership rates of city buses in remote areas, the bureau has proposed Taiwan’s first Flexible Taxi Transport Services Program in accordance with the city’s Development Blueprint for Major and Branch Regional Public Transportation Lines. The program uses taxis to provide mobile services to replace buses. Four taxi service lines are being launched this year: the Dahu Line, the Yong’an Line, the Daliao Line, and the Dashu Line. Riding the taxis is free of charge. On April 27, the Dahu Line started running north from Dahu Station. The other lines are expected to be launched starting from mid-May.
This program uses the maneuvering advantages of taxis to replace bus services during off-peak hours. This is expected to achieve three benefits: increasing ridership rates by approximately 62%, reducing total subsidies by approximately 37%, and improving service quality. In addition, the program could cultivate potential passengers for public transportation. The program maintains the off-peak frequencies of the original buses. Through a reservation system, passengers can more clearly grasp when the taxis will reach their stations and avoid missing them.
In addition to maintaining the off-peak frequencies of the original buses, people can also use a reservation hotline to book the taxis in advance to avoid disappointment (reservation hotline: 713-1000 or 0800-087-778). In addition to calling the KS Taxi service line directly, residents can also obtain service information at the Gangshan, Cieding, Hunei, and Lujhu District Offices, village chief service centers, bus stops on the Red 71 line, KMRT Gangshan South Station, and the Transportation Bureau website. If passengers find when riding the taxis that the driver’s service attitude is poor, they can record the license plate number and the time and place the incident occurred and report the driver to the Transportation Bureau, Kaohsiung City Government (complaint hotline: 07-7228465). Upon verification, the authorities will take action against the driver in accordance with the Highway Act.
