I am arriving Changsha and will be taking a 4.20am train to ZJJ. I am considering taking the bus to the train station. Will there be any available bus around 2:30am departing from the airport and would it be safe to walk from City Aviation Hotel where the bus stops to the train station at around 3:30am?
