Taipei City bus - lost and found?

Hey!

I think I left my keys on a Taipei City bus and am wondering what the best way to contact lost and found is. Is there just a facility I can go to without calling anybody?

I remember the route and time and all of that info if relevant. Hopped on in wanhua and hopped off in Zhonghe. Thanks.

One time I left something on a bus here I went to the terminus and the cleaners had found it.

What was the bus number? Many buses are run by a separate bus company. There are quite a few.

Taipei/Capital Bus
Danshui/Zhinan/Zhongxing/Guanghua
XinXin
Danan
Etc…

If you can tell me which bus number, I can tell you the company and the termini of which your keys might be located at.

Even in Wanhua, I can think of quite a few that go to Zhonghe, 214, 214 Express, 706(that one goes to Sansia)

Ahh. I see. It was the 202.

Ok, that is Zhinan Bus Company

0800.002.279

Bus ends at Zhinan Bus Anhe Station in Sindian. 指南客運安和站

That’s likely where your keys will be.

They’re still open. Last bus will be there in about 45-60 minutes at the time of this writing.

If you jump in a taxi/Uber and you feel your Chinese isn’t up to snuff and still unable to call, then I’d give the taxi driver this address

1 Anhe Road Section 2 Sindian District
新店區安和路二段1號

If it isn’t that urgent, then hopping on the 202 bus to the end will help. The last buses have been deployed and are passing Taipei Main Station at the time of this writing.

Good luck!
