How to Go to Alishan & Where the TRA schedule ???

I want to Go to AliShan and I have All schedule& price HSR already

But I dont know anything about TRA

I want to compare price,time between HSR/TRA

-Where I can get the time schedule of TRA from TaiChung to Chiayi and from Chiayi to TPE? And How about the price ?

-If I not miss understand TRA Station of Taichung is same place with TaiChung HSR Station right ? Coz last time I passed Taichung HSR Station.

-If I take HSR From Taichung to Chiayi I must Exit from Chiayi Staion Exit 2 and take the bus BRT to Chiayi Bus station (Where I must stand to wait for the bus Exit2 ,in front of HSR station or opposite HSR station ?) A bus take 30-45 mins.

-How long to get TPE if I take TRA from Chiayi About 4hrs. or more than this ? and The Price How much ?

Thx for all of ur kind

Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) train schedule:

The railway ticket fares can be found in the Chinese version of website, not the English version.

Taichung Railway (TRA) Station is in Taichung downtown. Taichung HSR Station is in Wurih, on the outskirts of Taichung city. It takes about 25~30 mins bus ride from Taichung downtown to Taichung HSR Station.
