Hi,
I dont think there is a free internal bus service . The last time I checked last month, they have a day Pass (Not expensive) to go around.
Have you checked out this site:

Try this link: Homepage:
http://www.ymsnp.gov.tw/

Sure it is possible to do that but I need to know if you intend to spend a couple of hours dipping in a Hot Spring??

YMS opens up early and the first bus up the mountain starts at 5.30am from Taipei Main Station - Outside East Exit 3. Bus No: 260 After YMS you can go straight to Beitou, Bus 230:Yangmingshan - Beitou or a Mini bus 6 ,therefore not necessary to come down the same route.

After Beitou (better after 2.30 pm ), Take MRT to Shipai , Right Exit to Main road , turn right and walk or take a bus from there , Lots of shops along the way except the big gap because of the Hospital. The Factory outlets are on Chungshan N Rd Sec 7. Note: Upon exit of Shipai MRT, just across the street is a place selling Oven baked Mini Prata like stuff. Very good and cheap. Try it.

Also at the Junction of Tain MU West Rd and Tian Mu North Road, Great Local food. Been around for more than 25 years.

From Tainmu after 5pm , you can head for Danshui and Fisherman"s wharf via Shipai MRT.
