I will be staying in See You Hotel (nearby Taipei Main Station).

From what I searched so far, I can take the transfer bus to HSR station and travel to Taipei Main Station.
The other alternative would be taking Kuo-Kuang bus 61. Free Go airport bus does not go to Taipe Main Station?

What would be the better way to go there as I will also be bringing baby stroller.

TIA.

Yeah, Freego bus does not go to Taipei Main Station. You can take the Guo Guang bus instead. Other alternative would be to take bus to Taoyuan HSR station and take a train to Taipei Main Station. Best would be to go by cab (most costly).

Kuo Kuang is still best way to TMS directly and they have many buses, so greater frequency.
