I think you may need to go to Nanjiao Bus Station instead for the bus to Nanshan (or Baiyanggou). I do not know if there is bus from Nianzigou bus station.

If you want to use the metro service, you can only get off at Erdaoqiao which is still around 4km away from the railway station. You can then use a taxi to the station or bus No. 16 or 10.
