Kaohsiung City’s Transportation Bureau says Taiwan’s first double-decker tour bus service will be launched in Kaohsiung by the end of 2016.

Two double-decker tour buses will offer the new service, hopefully becoming new mobile landmarks in the southern port city, the bureau said.

The new buses will have 44 seats on the upper floor and 10 seats on the bottom floor and provide multilingual portable audio tour guide service to passengers.

The buses will operate an east-west and north-south route to tourist attractions located across the city.

According to preliminary calculations, a one-day ticket for the bus ride will cost you NT$300 (US$9.40), with each trip taking around 40 minutes.
