Getting Around

iBikes

From 2014 Taichung city government have cooperated with Giant to introduce the iBike public bicycle sharing scheme for conveniently getting around the city. Currently there are over 50 stations spread throughout the city. Visitors to Taichung bike Week can find an iBike located directly outside the Splendor Hotel.

 

Taxi

Taxi's in Taichung, as in most Taiwanese cities, are relatively inexpensive and plentiful. Most of the exhibition hotels should have taxis waiting for customers at a nearby taxi rank, if not, the hotel concierge can help you order one. Taxi drivers will rarely speak or read English so it may be advisable to carry the written address of your destinations in Chinese to show to the driver. Tipping is not encouraged in Taiwan.

Buses

While numerous bus routes crisscross the city, visitors unfamiliar with either Taichung or with speaking Chinese may find it easier, and not particularly expensive, to get a taxi.

Shuttle Bus

A free shuttle bus is available between the Millenium Vee hotel of Ride On and the three TBW hotels.
