Answered by Johnny | Oct. 11, 2018 01:20

I think the cloest metro station should be Hu Bin Dong Lu which is about 700 to 800m away. You can choose to walk to get there directly. Maybe about 10 or 15min walking.

There are two direct rides D6332 and D6334 betweem, you do not need to change rides during the way.
Answered by Jean Ley from SINGAPORE | Nov. 01, 2016 21:41

Thanks, so I assume the rest would need to change at some point.
Answered by Belle from MALAYSIA | Nov. 02, 2016 03:55

as long as the ride shows one train number, it is direct ride. There is no connection ticket type, all the results you got from "xiamen-fuzhou south" are direct rides.
