However, this practice was tried during the tenure of former mayor Ke Wenzhe, but it ended after 3 months due to lack of results. Now the Chiang City Government plans to restart it. The 1280 monthly ticket for transport is used by almost many office workers, making the 40% off early bird ticket no competitive advantage at all, and it is even more difficult to coordinate with many companies to adjust their working hours. This approach "may have limited effect."

Li Yanxiu also mentioned that the short-term solution is to increase the manpower of the traffic police, but even after the increase, the number of traffic police in Neihu is only 42, ranking 8th among the 14 traffic teams. Seriously, the allocation of police force should not be like this, and resources should be invested where they are most needed.

Li Yanxiu believes that Neihu City plans to accommodate a population of 308,000 people. The current population of Neihu has reached 273,000. In addition, the Neihu Science and Technology Park has a commuting population of more than 210,000, far exceeding the population that Neihu can accommodate. It is suggested that in the long run, enterprises should be encouraged to go to Beishike Park to divert the commuting population. This will not only reduce the burden on the Neihu area, but also be beneficial to the balanced development of Taipei.

Li Yanxiu reminded Jiang Wan'an that although he affirmed his sincerity in solving the internal medicine traffic problem after taking office, the municipal government has no special medicine, and the municipal government is not an "emergency room". He must do a little every day. Only through professionalism, perseverance, and listening can the real solution to Neihu The solution to traffic problems.
