I'm still having trouble finding transport for hualien to CJ and CJ to Taichung.

Many people go opposite route from us so transport information for our route not readily available online. My route rly like not recommend.. but we have already booked our accom so changing route direction is not in consideration

So far taxi rates those recommend on the cab driver recommendation thread are around 3500-5500 range. We feel too exp for 2 person. Public transport info also hard to find online. Asked my Airbnb hosts, but all in trad Chinese.. My Chinese not good, needless to say I give up reading trad Chinese totally.

Rly hope here can recommend me cost efficient way to travel from
Hualien to cingjing evening time
Cingjing to Taichung morning time

TIA

Is it easier to go Taipei 101 from Taipei City Hall Station or Taipei 101 Station?
I have elderly & a toddler...would prefer a shorter walk.

Taipei 101 Station.....
actually not much diff oso cos u need to change train unless ur starting train stn is a direct line to tpe 101 stn

it like u going to marine sq. either u take the east/west line n walk the underground mall to MS or u take the circle line n alight esplanade
so the problem is u board ur train from east/west line or the circle line

CJ去花蓮不是每天都有交通工具可以搭。
最好就是與民宿查詢。

Should have. But he finds it pricey.
Moreover not many people like to grabshare/grabhitch on thier holiday.

Hualien to cingjing evening time is not really feasible.
It is 山路崎嶇。Not your ordinary road.
Alternatively, self drive and pray hard!

Did you mean check with the bnb host? My Chinese isn't that good

I checked though, host said
可以坐火車,也可以坐拼車

這段路沒有公車在跑

坐火車要先從花蓮坐火車到台中再從台中到清境

您到時候可以把您在花蓮的民宿電話跟地址告訴我嗎?我看看拼車公司的司機可不可以去花蓮民宿接您們到清境好家寨,一個人的拼車費用是1200台幣

But then as mentioned me Chinese is not very good.. not sure what is this 拼车 thing host is talking abt? And if we do take the 火车 is it HSR or TRA? Anyone knows how long it takes to go from HL to TC and TC to CJ?

"這段路沒有公車在跑" does this means no public transport?

Really thankful for all your replies

3-4pm is not possible.
Only way is to suggest you to push your minsu lodging by a day.
