Alishan railway serving Chiayi and Alishan has yet to re-open.

Easiest way is probably by HSR train to Chiayi Station and transfer to Taiwan Tourist Shuttle bus to Alishan.

Time to dig this up. I saw on the news part of the track is now open, but it is hard to find info in English. Does anyone know what part of the line is open and how to book tickets for the train?

Thanks in advance!
