The thing is I will prefer to take HSR to taichung.
Reason being, at least still have toilet breaks.
For Bus, it's all the way 2.5-3hrs depending on traffic conditions.
Bo bao is sure reach on time.
After 4hours plus seated on the flight, still need to drag so long, literally another part of the time by bus, i give up.
ah yes.. i forgot about toilet breaks...

Is the google map travl distance and time required accurate de ma?
Eg from Taoyuan airport to Chiayi it stated it need 2hr 46min if travel by car
I know it all depend on traffic condition la but if smooth can i assume it take around that timing?

Board Kuo Kuang bus at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport (TTIA) to Taipei Main Station. Travel time: About 50~55 mins.

Board Kemalan buses (葛瑪蘭) at Taipei Bus Station (Q Square 4th floor) to Yilan. Kemalan bus travels via Freeway 5 and the 12.9km Shuehshan Tunnel. Travel time: About 45~50 mins.

Kemalan bus: http://www.kamalan.com.tw
Train take longer route so take bus better. The above information, you need to check again to confirm the correct bus and station.

Cut more, but not 100% time you can match.
No way to predict one.

If you are going from taoyuan airport to places like taichung , my recommendation is to use bus where it is one-way (no transit), cause no need to walk up and down and can sleep all the way to taichung city. HSR is far away from city so u still need transport in between

Unless you are going to other places where there is no direct bus then hsr is better
