City-bus system in Lianyungang is not quite as developed as in other large coastal cities. There are only about 40 lines running in the whole city. The fare is in a range of CNY1-3 and there are conductors on the buses. Few night lines are available here. Most of the buses stop running early, before 18:30 in the evening, and the first bus of each line usually starts around 06:00-07:00. The interval on each line is about 5-20 minutes.

1. City-bus lines in Lianyungang is not as sophisticated as in other large cities of China. Most of the conductors and drivers talk with passengers in local dialects and not in Mandarin Chinese.
2. Most of the city-buses here are a bit old and not in very good condition at present. Only some newly added lines such as 101, 102 etc. are ok.
3. Lianyun Special Lines (also Bus No.101, 102, 103) run between Xinpu District and Xugou;
Bus No.10 takes you to the Huaguoshan Scenic Spot from the downtown area;
Bus No.33 runs between Xugou and Liandao Island Bathing Beach


Taxis in Lianyungang are mainly Santana as well as a few Red Flag and Jetta. They conveniently serve the public both in city proper and suburban areas. Usually, the drivers would charge by meter if traveling in downtown, and prefer a flat rate for long-distance travels. The flag-down rate of the cabs is CNY7 for the first 3km (2mi). For each succeeding kilometer (0.6mi), it costs CNY2.55 during the day and CNY2.75 between 23:00 and 06:00 the next day. Waiting fee is also charged with over 3 minutes' waiting at CNY0.4/minute.

I heard that you can take a bus from the East Bus Station of Lianyungang to Zhenjiang. However, I advise you to take a train to Zhenjiang from Lianyungang as it is faster and more convenient.

The distance is only 7km between them, you can take taxi with CNY15. Or take bus No.18 to Lingzhou Rd Keyuan Rd Station, then walk south of 300m to your hotel, which costs CNY2 with 40 minutes.
