Taipei Times: "Traffic near the Yuanshan Bus Station (圓山轉運站) in Taipei was severely disrupted yesterday morning when thousands of people tried to get free tickets for a bus trip to Yilan County.
The special offer was provided by freeway operator Kuo Kuang Motor Transport (國光客運), which was scheduled to launch three new bus routes via Freeway No. 5 to Yilan, Toucheng (頭城) and Nanfangao (南方澳) in Yilan County yesterday. To attract customers for the new bus routes, the bus company allowed people to board the bus free of charge for three days, from yesterday until tomorrow."

focustaiwan : "Taipei, Sept. 20 (CNA) The goal of the project for a light rail system serving New Taipei's Tamsui District is to upgrade Taiwan's rail industry by building trains locally for the new rail system, the city's Department of Rapid Transit Systems said Tuesday."Taiwan is already known for it's bike-sharing success and good bus service with many low-price and free buses. Now it will take another step toward energy independence by making its own light rail trains.
