Chiayi HSR to Chiayi Station (Alishan Forest Railway)

Assuming that the Forest railway is in operation, how long does it take to get by taxi from Chiayi HSR station to the Forest Railway Station in Chiayi?

Thanks

From here https://ticket.ht-alishan.com.tw/ it would appear that it is in operation, although it would be nice to get confirmation from someone who has been recently.

From Chiayi HSR Station > Chiayi Railway Station

Free shuttle buses depart Chiayi HSR Station (in Taibao city) to Chiayi Railway Station in Chiayi downtown, a distance of approx. 12 km, at regular intervals of 20 mins. Travel time: About 30 mins. A car’s drive should take about 15~20 mins.
