You can take the bus from the railway station to the glass bridge but you have to make two transfers on the way. It takes too much time and is inconvenient. So the most convenient way is to take the train from the WH railway station to the Fanchang West railway station and then take a taxi to the scenic area.

You can take a bus from Yangzhou East/ West Bus Station to Wuhu first, and then take a taxi to the scenic area. The bridge is not near the railway station, and it’s in Fanchang County, Wuhu City.
