Taichung gang lu could be easily rearranged to introduce dedicated bus lanes. The other streets less so but it can be done. Wenxin road is getting an ovehead MRT line anyway. For it to be a success there has to be an integrated approach, something that Taiwan is very bad at doing i.e. reduce number of scooters and don't share scooters with bus lanes, discourage car drivers, enforce traffic regulations, proper training of bus drivers, integrated ticketing, ensure the best vehicles and route is chosen instead of being a result of guanxi.
