Ok, I Know
Express Bus
Some of the inter-district, long-distance shuttle buses need to go through non-city roads – such as the National Freeways – to speedily connect between townships and cities. These are called Highway Buses, which can even provide connections to rapid transit stations, and their fare prices equal those of city buses, which is most convenient. Other faraway scenic spots, such as Jiufen and Jinshan, can also be reached by bus, but fares and bus stop locations vary by operators. Travelers are advised to do Internet research in advance.
For those traveling by Highway Bus, it would be most efficient to start from Banqiao Bus Station or Taipei Bus Station, where numerous bus lines, by various operators, converge. Almost every notable scenic spot or tourist attraction can be reached by this method, giving you easy access to multiple sites.

Public Road Buses
Some express bus lines run cross borders of administrative regions on highways instead of city roads to quickly connect different towns/cities. They always stop somewhere on the MRT system. The rates are the same as city buses and for this reason they are easy to ride. Some commuter buses go to further destinations, such as Jiufen and Jinshan; most are accessible from the public transportation system and the price varies by provider. It is best to go online to budget and plan your trip accordingly.
For those who choose highway bus, the easiest way is to go to New Taipei Bus Station or Taipei Bus Station where various bus companies are located. You can therefore go anywhere, including well-known scenic spots, without any difficulties.
