HOME » About CCU » Getting to CCU

From Taoyuan International Airport, one can choose from the following two public transportation systems: HSR - High Speed Rail (bullet train) or highway bus. If neither one is available - e.g. late arrival at midnight when neither HSR nor bus is in service - you can always take the taxi to CCU as the last resort, which would be much more expensive than either the HSR or the bus.

The complete route and cost of the two options are summarized as below:

1. HSR (Recommended): about NTD$920

For ticket information, please see http://www.thsrc.com.tw/en/?lc=en
2. Highway bus: Cheaper but more time-consuming

After arriving at the Taipei station, you can take Solarbus (日統客運) from Taipei to Chiayi. The Taipei-to-Chiayi bus runs every half an hour, and takes about 3.5 hours to arrive in Chiayi.
