今年台北市政府在調整公車系統提出了不少措施,其中忠孝西路公車亭優化已經完工,現有的幹線公車也改回數字編號,正當大夥兒還在習慣新的公車編號時,緊接著,「捷運幹線公車」(Metro Bus)即將上路!

 

聽起來很嶄新,但實際上是將現有的公車路線改為Metro Bus。不同的是:感線公車的班距將大幅加密(平日班距為尖峰46分鐘,離峰510分鐘),大概就像現在的臺北客運307路線一樣吧,換個角度想,這也可以說是類似BRT,只是沒有專用路權而已。

 

目前共有五條路線將改為Metro Bus,分屬四家客運業者,分別是285287(大都會客運)642(新店客運)263(臺北客運)518(首都客運),行駛路線橫跨臺北市與新北市板橋(江子翠)、新店(青潭)、汐止(東湖)。除了班距加密外,另設計專屬號誌,貼於車輛跟路線圖上,行先也採用全彩LED,將十分「與眾不同」。路線顏色方面,東西向路線定為藍色,南北向路線定為綠色,其他路線則為黃色,並沒有為個別路線設置專屬顏色。

 

路線更名預計於7/05上路,屆時將推出與捷運的轉乘優惠以及相關贈禮活動!為使捷運幹線有捷運的感覺,筆者將五條路線合併於一張路線圖中,針對同方向但不同路線的情形,在顏色上稍作區別。

This year, Taipei City Government issued few ways to improve the bus system. The new bus shelter on Zhongxiao West Road has been in use, and the main line buses have been renamed as ‘line XXX.’ (XXXnumber) And in this summer, ‘Taipei Metro Bus’ is going to provide services!

 

It sounds innovative, however, the city government just renames some current bus lines as ‘Metro Bus.’ What different is the interval of Metro Bus will become shorter (In weekdays, Metro Bus comes every 46 minutes during peak time and every 510 minutes during off peak time), just as Bus 307. In other words, ‘Metro Bus’ seems like ‘BRT’ without bus exclusive lanes.

 

So far, there will be five lines that become Metro Bus, which are run by four different bus companies: Bus 285(becomes Dunhua Line) & 287(becomes Neihu Line) are run by Metropolitan Transport Corporation(MTC); Bus 642(becomes Songjiang-Xinsheng Line) belongs to Sin Dian Bus; Bus 263(becomes Ren’ai Line) belongs to Taipei Bus, and Capital Bus runs Bus 518(becomes Minsheng Line).

 

Besides the shorter interval, the city government not only designed a new logo for Metro Bus, but also asked bus companies to use colorful LED display boards. For line color, blue is for East-West lines (Ren’ai Line & Minsheng Line), green is for North-South lines (Dunhua Line & Songjiang-Xinsheng Line), and yellow is for other lines.

 

The new policy will be implemented since 2017/07/05. Passengers can enjoy ‘transfer discount’ and other coupons from then on. To make Metro Bus as real subway, I gathered five Metro Bus lines into one route map and used different color depths to identify lines easily.
