Taiwan public transportation budget raised to new high

WantChinaTimes: "The ministry anticipates that it will not be easy to achieve a government goal of a 30% public transportation market share by 2025, Lin said.

The ministry hopes that local governments, particularly those of the six special municipalities–Taipei, New Taipei, Taoyuan, Taichung, Tainan and Kaohsiung–can do more to encourage people to use public transport, he said.

The 2015 budget will be spent on the subsidization of public bus operations in remote areas and measures to replace old buses and taxis with new ones and promote a multipurpose ticket card system for public bus and railway services, according to the ministry."
