Is there a luggage storage at the Changling Metro Station or Mausoluem?

Sorry, you can't walk to Changling mausoleum because Changling metro station is 8km away from it. You have to take taxi to the scenic area. As I know, there is no luggage storage place in metro station. Maybe you can ask the staff in Changling mausoleum.

You can take metro line 4 to North Square station and transfer to airport express to the airport.
Answered by nizam_mr from MALAYSIA | Jan. 05, 2020 18:00

Update to everyone:
Line4 and Line13 Beikezhan-North platform is side by side, but you have to get the elevator down-and-up to interchange. To get to Line2 BEikezhan however, you have to exist this 'extended' station to get to SpeedRailway station, and Line2 station is a floor below (Line2 and Line4/13 are not transferable because you need to exit-reenter the ticket gantry system, but they are physically connected with some walk)
