TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Kuo-Kuang Motor Transportation Co., which is operating a package tour from Taipei and Yilan County to Taichung's Wuling Farm during cherry blossom season, on Thursday (Feb. 8) encouraged the public to avail themselves of its bus services on weekdays, as buses for the coming weekend have been fully booked.

The 2021 Wuling Farm Cherry Blossom Festival began Feb. 12 and will last until March 1. The pink lady and Taiwan cherry blossoms have recently reached full bloom and will be followed by the Japanese Showa, Wusheh, and other types of cherry blossom trees.

Bus services to Wuling Farm were in great demand during the Lunar New Year holiday, during which nearly 200 services transported 7,000 passengers to the farm, CNA cited Kuo-Kuang as saying. The 70 bus services scheduled for the coming weekend (Feb. 20-21) have been fully booked, the company added, and it will ramp up its service capacity to transport more people to the farm from next Tuesday to Friday (Feb. 22-26).

The bus company urged the public to visit the farm on weekdays, when the site will not be so crowded. It also announced that from now until March 1, it will gift weekday passengers with cherry blossom themed masks to encourage people to use the weekday services.

The bus package includes a round-trip ticket and admission to the farm. Members of the public can take the bus from Taipei Main Station, Taipei City Hall Bus Station, Yilan Bus Station, Luodong Bus Station, and Sanxiang sports field.
