Our school bus pick-up service covers most of Taipei city, Shilin District, south to Guting MRT station, and east to Neihu area. If your house is located at New Taipei City or the outskirts of Taipei City, you may need to take your kid(s) to Taipei City or to a pick-up point, or consult with the summer school staff.
The bus route and schedule change every year. We will send email notification to parents about the pick-up point and time 1-2 weeks before the summer school starts. Since summer school starts at 9 am, students will be arranged to spend less than one hour for bus travel time.
