Apart from the ordinary public buses, the Intercity Bus Terminal also has bus lines running between the five districts of  the city, such as lines from Chancheng District to Gaoming, Shunde and Sanshui districts, as well as a line from Nanhai District to Shunde District. The service is usually available from 06:00 to 20:30, and the through fare ranges from CNY6 to CNY12.

In addition, there are five special tourist lines operating in there. They take visitors back and forth between the main points of interest in the city, which makes it very easy for them to see the main attractions of the city:
