    Romanization of Taichung's top 50 Main Roads
Currently, Taichung city (like Taipei city) is implementing the Hanyu Pinyin system of romanization on roadsigns. Some signs, however, still retain older Wade-Giles and MPSII romanization. Further complicating matters, many signs are simply misspelled. The central government and some counties and cities around the island use the alternative Tongyong Pinyin - for example, on the freeway exits leading into Taichung city. To help clarify the situation, the Compass Magazine insert map includes all three romanization systems for major roads.

Below are a list of the top 50 main roads in Taichung city in Hanyu Pinyin, with a few common alternative names noted:
