Guangzhou Bus and Metro Search Tool


1. The search tool has collected all of the bus and subway routes in downtown Guangzhou City. The buses to suburban area, such as Huadu District, as well as the Guangzhou Airport shuttle buses are also included in.

2. The tool could not be used to search for the long-distance buses, such as the bus to Humen, to Shenzhen, and so on.

3. Most of the bus/metro stops of the city gained names from its nearby roads or the famous buildings, such as Yue Xiu Gong Yuan (Yue Xiu Park) and Hai Zhu Guang Chang (Hai Zhu Square). Few of hotels or restaurants are used to name a bus stop. If you would like to search a bus route starting from your hotel, please get an idea of the closest bus stop around it firstly.

4. Even it is the same road or building, there will be several bus stops set. For example, around the Haizhu Square, there are Hai Zhu Guang Chang (Hai Zhu Square), Hai Zhu Guang Chang ( Qiao Guang Dong ), Hai Zhu Guang Chang ( Qiao Guang Xi ), Hai Zhu Guang Chang ( Yi De Dong ), etc.. When you search for a bus, you could input the accurate bus stop or just Hai Zhu Guang Chang, and then the other related choices will be listed in the result.

5. Aiming to avoid the translation difference between Chinese and English, the supplied search tool gives a priority to Chinese Pinyin, especially when the stops were named by road or street.

Do you mean Renmingzhong Road? If so, you can take bus 556 from Sanyuanli station to Dongsheng Hospital station, then walk north around 100m to the destination. It takes 45 minutes with CNY2.

Would you mind provide your starting place? But for your convenience, taking taxi is a faster way.
Answered by Carlotta from ITALY | Sep. 19, 2019 02:47

Hi! I am near the last stop of bus 55, but I usually take the 13, 15, 1, 97 etc. On the road nearby. I know the taxi or Didi would be a faster option, but also more expensive. Since I am quite familiar with the buses/metro of Guangzhou I was wondering if one of these buses operates at 5-6 am since I know that the metro open at 6 am. Thank you for the response!
