gaomei wetlands will require a taxi.
Can go by bus. But really must factor in long travelling time.

Sorry ah, I tried to Google as well as searching in this forum liao, but still can't really find the answer to what I'm about to ask...

If I am to take bus 1062 from Zhongxiao Fuxing to Jiufen, do I come out from Exit 1 or Exit 2 from Zhongxiao Fuxing station? Some sites say exit 1, but a more recent blog says exit 2...

From MRT Zhongxiao Fuxing (忠孝復興), Brown Line BR1 and Blue Line BL5 interchange, leave from Exit 1 and take bus route 1062 (Keelung Bus) to Jinguashi, alight at Jiufen. The ride is about 1 hour and the fare is NT$102.
Your googling skill not good

Got many sites say Exit 1 liao (but all older posts). However, got one particular site posted in 2017 says exit 2 leh.

http://thisgirlabroad.com/how-to-get...n-from-taipei/

Or issit my googling skill TOO good, end up I dunno which one is correct? Bus stops always relocate here and there, so I ask here for confirmation since got many regulars to TW here.

If you all confirm exit 1 then I'll listen to you all.

Aaarrrr? So confirm exit 2 now liao?

I beo from the bus company website, the route map seems to indicate the bus stop is nearer to exit 2 as well.

Below bus stop has 1062 listed and is nearer to exit 2... so this is the new bus stop? (I'm assuming Google Maps is updated...)

Yep, that seems to be the correct bus stop. I remember it was outside some mall. I took a photo of the notice at the old bus stop, but I not able to post the photo here.
