Thanks for the reply! :) What's the name of the shuttle bus service and how much? Does it also go to other attractions in Xinshe? Thanks!

The shuttle bus departing Fengyuan on weekends only is Green Route Shuttle Bus. The first bus departs Fengyuan at 0800 hrs and the last bus departs at 1600 hrs to Zhongxingling (中興嶺) where a transfer to Blue Route shuttle bus is required to get to Xinshe Sea of Flowers. These buses only bring visitors to Xinshe Sea of Flowers Festival.

We joined 花仙子接駁導覽專車 (the shuttle bus service) for NT250/pax for the whole day. Please refer to http://www.shinshe.org.tw/new/shuttle.php .We pre-booked the shuttle bus via email "shinshe.org@gmail.com" prior to our trip. On the actual day, we took taxi from 台中 to 新社新二村7/11 to meet the bus driver. It was raining so there were just my family & another couple from Singapore on the minibus. We covered 百菇莊, Lunch at 菇神, 新社莊園 Summit Resort and 薰衣草森林. Did not manage to go to 新社花海節 as it was too wet to walk around.Then we took 豐原客運 270 or 276 back to 台中. You may pay 豐原客運 bus fare using your EasyCard. If you do not have one, you may buy it at 7/11 . Each card require NT100 as deposit. This card is handy if you are taking the local transport in Taipei (such as MRT or local bus).
