Asked by Liliana from LATVIA | Jan. 05, 2020 23:35Reply
Hi, is there any one knows about city bus in Shijiazhuang?
We want to know if there is bus service at night time from train station to Jinjiang Inn Shijiazhuang Ping'an Street? Any information would be appreciated!

I am not sure about the bus but the hotel should be near Ping'an Dajie metro station. You can use metro for sure. From the train station, you can take line 3 to Xinbai Square first and then change to line 1 to Ping'an Dajie. Metro service in Shijiazhuang ends at a very late time, as long as you are not travel at midnight after 11pm, it should not be a problem.

Thank you for your inquiry.

The child of 8 years old can buy a child ticket with 50% off for seats. If the child of 3 years old can share the seat with you or the other child, you do not have to buy a ticket. According to the policy, child under 120cm can board for free without ticket by sharing seat with adult. Once adult can only take one child under 120cm for free. Hope this information can help you.
