The long-distance bus is recommended to you because it is cheaper and faster. The bus departs at 8:00am and rolls by every hour.

It may decide on the time you take the taxi. If you take it at peak hours (06:30-09:00 and 17:30-19:00), it may be a little hard to catch one.

May I know whether you will fly into YC city? If so, I presume you wanna go to the Yanhu campus on Shengli Street. Well, you can take airport shuttle bus to Aviation Hotel. Then walk to Xijing Female Hospital bus stop to take bus no. 302 to your destination directly. The shuttle bus costs CNY15 and bus no. 302 costs CNY1-2.
