The China Post - - LOCAL - BY BRIAN LIN

Da- Yeh Uni­ver­sity ( ) in Changhua County held a cer­e­mony on June 1 to inaugurate new bus net­works, for which the uni­ver­sity won a Golden Safety Award. Changhua County Coun­cilor Chen Jin-zhe stated that the uni­ver­sity has made many ef­forts to in­crease stu­dent safety. Other par­tic­i­pants in­cluded Changhua County Coun­cilor Chen Chin-cher and Leg­is­la­tor Wang Hui- mei. The uni­ver­sity is one of the first ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions to ini­ti­ate the bus project sup­ported by the Min­istry of Trans­porta­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (MOTC).

Da-Yeh has been ap­ply­ing for the MOTC project that links area bus net­works to the uni­ver­sity cam­pus since 2012. From now on, Chang-Hua Bus and Yuan Lin Bus will set up bus sta­tions across cam­pus. The net­work of public trans­porta­tion at Da-Yeh Uni­ver­sity has been up­graded to in­clude six routes with a to­tal of 140 stops at the school per day, pro­vid­ing Da-Yeh stu­dents with an eas­ier and safer choice.

In ad­di­tion, the uni­ver­sity has cre­ated a smart­phone app al­low­ing teach­ers and stu­dents to im­me­di­ately ob­tain ve­hi­cle ar­rival time, traf­fic in­for­ma­tion and timetable in­quiries, pro­vid­ing a fu­ture model for schools ev­ery­where. This project has not only made life more con­ve­nient for stu­dents, but also lo­cal area res­i­dents. Se­nior cit­i­zens, for ex­am­ple, can take public trans­porta­tion that en­sures their safety.
