Along Kenting main street, board bus to Fangliao Station. The route is operated by a few bus companies – Kaohsiung bus, Pingtung bus, Chungnan bus, Kuo Kuang bus. Board railway train to Taitung-Hsin Railway Station.

Regular shuttle buses serve the link between Taitung-Hsin Railway Station and the bus station in the city centre, about 10 mins ride. From the bus station in Taitung city centre, take a Hualien or Dingdong bus heading north on the coastal road towards Jingpu or Hualien. Alight at Fugang Harbour stop to embark on 50 mins ferry ride to Green Island. Do check the ferry departure times as trips to Green Island are few in a day.

Do the reverse from Green Island to Taitung-Hsin Railway Station for train ride to Tainan.

Board Kenting Express Bus #9188 from Zuoying (in Kaoshiung) to Kenting via expressway no. 88.

Bus route #9117 is operated by a few bus companies – Kaohsiung KS bus, Pingtung bus, Chungnan, Kuo Kuang bus via provincial highway no. 17 as you can see from the website www.ksbus.com.tw/schedule/part2-9117.htm
