Yichang Transportation -- Getting There
Yichang Sanxia Airport (YIH), about 16 miles (26 kilometers) from the city center and 34 miles (55 kilometers) from the Three Gorges Dam, has played an important role in the construction of the Three Gorges Dam Project. The airport was built in 1993 and started to use in 1996. Now it operates 31 air routes which lead to many domestic destinations, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Nanning, Xi'an and Hangzhou, as well as a few international cities like Busan.

Yichang Railway Station
This railway station was built in 1974 and refurbished in 2002. Surprisingly, the railway station was built halfway up a mountain. The passengers can get a bird's-eye view of part of the city from the station. In usual days, it is only used for freight transport. However, in peak travel time like Spring Festival Travel Rush, it may also be used for passenger transport to relieve the passenger pressure of the East Railway Station.
Location: No.107, Dongshan Road
Transportation: city-buses Nos. 6, 9, 27
The development of motorways in the city has been very rapid. Yihuang Expressway (from Yichang to Huangshi), Hurong Expressway (from Shanghai to Chengdu) and three national roads play an important role in the city's highway communication. There are three bus stations in the city: Yichang Long-distance Bus Station, Dagongqiao Bus Station and Haitong Bus Station. Amongst them, the Long-distance Bus Station is the biggest and transports most of the passengers every day. The bus routes in the stations radiate out to the neighboring cities as well as other cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xi'an and Zhengzhou.
The bus station also has bus routes to the four municipalities and cities in Jiangsu Province, Zhejiang Province, Shaanxi Province and some neighboring cities like Wuhan.
