Answered by TravelChinaGuide | May. 06, 2020 17:35

Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no rail to Beilun District but metro service available. You can take metro line 2 to Gulou first and then change to line 1 to either Xiapu, Changjianglu or Zhonghelu etc which are all stops in Beilun District. The metro ends at 22:42 at railway station. As long as you can catch this one, you can reach Beilun District by this transfer option.

There is no South Station in Ningbo, only one railway station in service. i suppose you refer to south bus station? There is indeed a bus station called south bus station near the railway station, in walking distance.

I think you may need to take a bus from Ningbo South Bus station to Shenjiamen first. The buses run around every 20 or 30min. Then you can take a taxi to Shenjiamen Baishengdong Port and take the boat to Putuoshan.
