She is just telling the very truth.
If I am you, will cab to and fro from wulai to xindian.
The rest by metro.
Spend a little bit more, am sure your mum will enjoy more.
Buses from xindian can be very packed at times.

2hrs is super long.
Relax ride to xindian.
Kopi first.
Then cab up will be ideal.

If getting the 一卡通, you can travel free for up to 10km in Taichung city buses. [Not sure if it is accumulated distance for a day, or for a card, or no charges as long as long as each bus trip is less than 10km]..

Hey guys. I am planning to go Taipei for a concert in late Oct, and the venue is at 市民大道.

I have never been to Taiwan before, so will like to seek some advice and recommendations. I will be traveling alone, so ideally I hope to stay somewhere (hotel or airbnb also can) easy to commute to airport with the luggages.

Hi Seniors, I will be travelling to taichung for 3 days 2 night come 26th july. Was recommended by a friend that it may be better to hire a driver for a day trip. Any driver in taichung that anyone can recommend?
