“Romantic Encounter on Love Bus” ~ Picnic Concert at KUBIC Crowded with Enthusiastic Audience

[Kaohsiung News] Love industry is one of the main aspects of the Kaohsiung City Government’s economy boosting strategy. To encourage citizens to express their love to people important to them, the Transportation Bureau specially organized the “Romantic Encounter on Love Bus” series of activities, and held “Love Bus Picnic Concert” on April 6 at KUBIC Container Village, which is near IKEA Kaohsiung. Citizens were invited to use public transportation and have a spring picnic with the pop singer, Ball Chuang. The activity attracted many fans waiting early at the site. One of the participants Miss Lin said, “The activity today is wonderful. I never thought I can picnic with my favorite idol in no distance by taking a bus and enjoy a Love River trip on a double decker. There are also a lot of delicious food and creative goods stalls, and performances here. I hope the City Government will hold this kind of activities more often in the future.”

 The Senior Executive Officer of the Transportation Bureau, Lin Hong-Shen, stated that the Transportation Bureau has offered a number of fare discount plans such as “MenGo Transportation Card” (monthly pass) in collaboration with Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corp. to encourage citizens to travel by bus and MRT and reduce harmful emissions from private vehicles. Compared to 2017, bus ridership increased by approximately 880 thousand in 2018. This time, the Transportation Bureau specially invited a popular idol singer, Ball Chuang, to jointly promote the use of public transportation such as bus and MRT. It is hoped that participants will enjoy the experience and get into the habit of using public transportation for commuting and leisure travel. If couples, parents and children, or friends ride on any one of the Kaohsiung city buses together and post their heart gesture photos to the Bureau’s Facebook Fan Page “@tbkcdream” before the end of April 2019, they will have a chance of winning a romantic dinner at the Chamonix restaurant, tickets for Ferris Wheel at Dream Mall, or other goodies. All citizens are invited to take a photo on a bus with their friends and win the prizes.

 The Transportation Bureau stated that Kaohsiung City continues to launch combo discounts for public transportation in 2019. Besides the current deals such as “free rides from the third ride onward in one day,” “NT$3 discounts for MRT-to-bus transfers,” and “ceiling fare of NT$60 for intercity buses,” the multiple “MenGo unlimited pass” plans and “free bus-to-bus transfer in 2 hours” have also received highly positive responses from the public. Every citizen is welcomed to work together to lower air pollution by using public transportation, and make bus and MRT our main means of transport in our daily lives.
