Asked by Hui from THAILAND | Dec. 01, 2018 23:47Reply
If I book either bus or train ticket from Jinan. How do I know which station I have to go?
I’m planning to reserve the ticket from there to liaocheng. But since there are many stations,
Bus , have 2 or 3 stations
Train , have 3 stations

there is no any detail explaining about what station to take the train. Please explain how to take both train and bus. And if possible please provide the bus schedule also, I don’t see any schedule in English in any website.

Thank you
