Long Distance Bus From Wuhan Tianhe Airport to Nanjing, Jiangsu on Sunday 7th October
Hi All

Unfortunately all trains are booked for this journey so need to consider a long distance bus. Basically can someone advise on what bus station to go to and times of buses to Nanjing after 0900 pm. Also can I make a reservation online or do I need to queue on the day of travel. Many thanks

Dear, you need to first take the airport express (Wuchang Line) at T2 and then get off at Fujiapo Passenger Station where you can take the long-distance bus to Nanjing.

But the bus usually departs at 11:00am from this station every day. When you take the airport express to the station, it is too late and there is no bus operated at that time. So you are advised to spend one night in the hotel near the station and then take the bus next morning.
