The Taiwan Tourist Shuttle service “Magong Shuttle Bus North Ring Line” launched officially
New bus services ride with Taiwan Shuttles everywhere
The Tourism Bureau, MOTC encourages visitors to take public transportation, such as Taiwan Tourist Shuttles. This transportation service has been running in Taiwan for 7 years, and has earned high acclaim from local and international visitors. The Magong Shuttle Bus North Ring Line operated by Taiwan Tourist Shuttles will bring us into Penghu from June 21 (Tue). Starting from this summer, you and your family will no longer have to ride your motorbikes under the sun to travel between tourist resorts. Traveling worry-free, these shuttles are cruise-style buses that transport you between all the major resorts along the north-ring line in Penghua in air-conditioned comfort. Getting off at different resorts, you can take a short walk to experience the natural and humanistic scenes there. This is the low-carbon island’s vision of tourism.
