Xuzhou Transportation

Xuzhou has quite perfect transportation facilities both in air and land. The particular location makes its airport a transport center of 'Huai-Hai Economic Zone'(an economic developing area including Jiangsu and its neighboring provinces). Here, five national highways and 20 provincial highways are connected, extending to 16 provinces and 80 cities in China. It plays an essential role in goods transport between southern and northern China.


Located about 45 kilometers (28 miles) southeast of the city, Xuzhou Guanyin Airport (XUZ) is one of the main access points to the city. There are direct flights to Beijing (once a day), Shanghai (twice a day), Guangzhou (five times a week), Shenzhen (five times a week), Chengdu (four times a week), Xiamen (four times a week), Dalian (four times a day), Guilin (twice a week) and other large cities in China. The airport is also the transfer center of many other flights. Airport shuttle buses run from Xuzhou Restaurant to the airport two hours before flight time. The ticket is about CNY20.

This city is called the 'Junction of China's Railways' due to its important role in the nation's transportation. Two of the nation's main railway branches connect here, so it's very convenient for you to come here from south or north China by train.

Currently, there are two railway stations in the city for passenger transport:
 Xuzhou Railway Station is in the meeting point of Beijing-Shanghai and Lianyungang-Lanzhou Railways. It mainly operates normal trains, including those to/from Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Luoyang, Zheengzhou, and Nanjing.

 East Railway Station is one of the major stations along Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway. In the future, more high speed railways will reach here. It specializes in bullet trains, inluding those to/from Beiing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xiamen, and Hangzhou.

Long-Distance Bus

There are many highways in the city with convenient service stations. There are three main bus stations. Long Distance Bus Station is located on Qingnian Road, from which you can travel to other provinces. It will take you about seven hours to Beijing, Shanghai or Xi'an. Central Bus Station is located on North Zhongshan Road in the center of the city, from which you can go travel to districts and counties under the control of the Xuzhou government as well as other cities of Jiangsu Province. West Bus Station is located at the entrance of West Sanhuan Road along West Huihai Road, from which you can go to cities of neighboring provinces including Shandong and Henan, as well as Peixian County (the mother town of China's Martial Arts).
 Currently, only Xuzhou metro line 1 and metro line 2 are in service. Metro Line 1 links Luwo and East Railway Station. Metro line 2 connects North Coach Station and Xincheng District East. In the future, there will be 13 subway lines in total getting through the urban area and suburb of the city for a long-term plan.


There are two kinds of city buses, ordinary buses and air-conditioned ones. A ticket is generally CNY1 for the former and CNY2 for the latter. In addition, there is a special tourist bus from the east railway station to many tourist destinations including Yunlong Mountain, Yunlong Lake and Pengzu Yuan. This costs about CNY2. You can also take No.1 and No.2 tourist buses to other tourist spots. No.1 bus starts from Quanshan National Forest Park to the west railway station. No.2 bus starts and ends at the north gate of China University of Mining and Technology, which is on South Jiefang Road in Quanshan District. Here is also a Special Line shuttling between the East Railway Station and the South Bus Station of the city.


This city has more than 4,000 taxis shuttling around the city. They are at your service anytime you flag down one. The starting fare for the first 3km (2mi) is CNY7 and the distance surcharge is CNY1.6 for every extra kilometer within 3-6km (2-4mi). If the distance is more than 6km (4mi), CNY2.4 will be charged for every additional kilometer. The fee is CNY1.9 for each extra kilometer when a car runs during 23:00 and 05:00 the next day for the distance beyond 3km (2mi). All possible toll fees during a travel should be paid by passenger.

From your campus, you can take bus no.36 to Xuzhou Railway Station first. Then walk to General Bus Station. After arriving, there are direct airport shuttle buses that can take you to the destination.

How to get from Xuzhou East station to Xuzhou Airport?
1. Approximately how much would a taxi cost from Dongshan to Airport (it appears to be about 45 km)?

2. Your site (and the Airport website) mention an airport bus service, but information on the exact pickup points in Xuzhou is vague (and somewhat inconsistent). It does not appear that the bus stops at Dongshan. Can you provide the exact location where I could pick up the airport bus?

Thanks in advance for your help

You can take a taxi or just walk from XZ railway Station to XZ Bus Station and the distance is about 2 km. Then you can take a shuttle bus from XZ Bus Station directly to the airport.

If you take a taxi to the airport, it costs around CNY 120.
