Suzhou Transportation

Suzhou Bus Search Tool


1. The search tool has collected all of the bus in downtown Suzhou, including tourism bus routes. Apart from these, there are also regular city-bus lines to exurb area, towns and surrounding county-level cities , such as Wujiang, Taicang (passing Kunshan) and Changshu.

2. The tool could not be used to search for the long-distance buses, such as from downtown Suzhou to Hangzhou, Nanjing, Shanghai, etc. However, inter-city bus routes to Wuxi and Yangcheng Lake-Shanghai Bus are exceptions.

3. Most of the bus stops of Suzhou gained names from its nearby roads or well known buildings, such as Guan Qian Jie (Guangqian Street) and Zhuo Zheng Yuan (The Humble Administrator's Garden). Few hotels or restaurants are used to name a stop, such as China Garden Hotel and International Hotel. For most of the place, if you would like to search a bus route starting from your hotel, please get an idea of the closest stop around it firstly.

4. Even it is the same road or building, there will be several bus stops set. For example, around Guan Qian Jie, the busy downtown commercial area in Downtown Suzhou, there are several bus stops:  Chan Yuan Chang, Chan Yuan Chang (Guan Qian Jie West), Cuo Fang Qiao Guan Qian Jie East, etc. When you search for a bus, you could input the accurate stop, for example, Shi Lu (literarily  mean Stone Road), and then the related choices will been shown in the result: Shi Lu South, Shi Lu West, Shi Lu Lao Jie Fang, Guang Ji Qiao (Shi Lu). You can select one of them to see futher information.

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.

Hi, i will be staying at Suzhou Sun Plaza Hotel and planning to go to Lingering garden first by foot and continue to Tiger Hill with tourism bus line 1, where is the bus stop at lingering garden to wait for tourism bus line 1? is it easily spotted?

And after from Tiger Hill, planning to go to SZ museum by tourism bus line 2, where is the bus stop to wait for tourism bus line 2 at Tiger Hill?

After arriving to SZ museum, will take walk to Humble Administrator Garden, Lion Grave Garden, and going to Ping Jiang road and continue to Master of nets garden, how to go to Master of nets garden from Ping Jiang road?

What is the difference between Master of nets garden and Mountain Villa with Embracing Beauty? which one is more recommended to go from Pingjiang road?

1. It is not difficult to find. Walk out of the Southeast Gate of Lingering Garden and then walk west about 70m, you can find the stop.
2. Get out of Southeast Gate of the Tiger Hill and walk south about 360m, you can see the bus stop.
3. You can take Bus Line 501.
4. Both are very good and easy to get from Pingjiang Road.
5. Shantang Street, Pingjiang Road and Guanqian Street are all worth to visit.

Where are you now? Humble Administrator's Garden is right at No.178 Northeast Street, Gusu District, Suzhou City. I can estimate the rough duration as long as you provide the starting place.

The buses you mentioned can all bring you to the museum and it is easy to catch the bus. Different buses has different running routes so the running time is uncertain.

Hi we want to go to the adm garden from KUNSHAN Spits Center. Is there a bus to get us there?
Answers (1)
Answered by Ellene from USA | Nov. 05, 2018 17:28

I think you mean Sports Center. There is no direct bus between so you need to make 3 transfers to get there: first, take the bus Kunshan C1 at the sports center bus stop and get off at Zhongnan Street bus stop. Then walk about 4 minutes to Zhongnan Street metro station to take the metro line 4 and get off at Donghuan Road. Then walk about 4 minutes to the East Suzhou University North Campus where to take the bus No.202 and get off at Suzhou Museum. Then walk about 5 minutes to the garden. You may spend about 2 hours on this ride.

It may be a little complicated and you can also choose to take a taxi. The approximate fare is about CNY CNY80 – 90.
