Xi'an Long-Distance Bus

Xi'an is ranked as the second largest highway transportation hub in China, supported by five national highways of 345 kilometers (214.4 miles) and twelve provincial freeways of 266 kilometers (165.3 miles). Additionally, ten freeways have been constructed between the urban area and the districts and counties in the city. Any journey between each other of them takes no more than one hour.

Presently, Xi'an's passenger transport is mainly supported by seven large long-distance bus stations, all of which are built in the urban area.

So, it is easy for passengers to choose the right station if they know the direction of their destination. The following are the seven large stations for reference:

Two schedules are available from Fangzhicheng Bus Station to Shanghai at 13:00 and 15:00, and only one bus leaves from Sanfuwan Bus Station at 16:00.

You are suggested to book immediately. Search for the website by inputting "xaglkp", but it only has Chinese version. Turn to your Chinese friend. Or dial 96716 to ask whether they sell ticket on phone.

Good luck!

Where and when do I get a bus from Xian to Wudangshan?

Answered by Julie from CHINA | Mar. 31, 2017 02:56

As I remember, there is a long distance coach at the Main Coach Station to Wudangshan, which is opposite to the Main Railway Station. However, I have no idea whether the coach is still operates. You may need to confirm it.
Besides, you can take a train to Wudangshan Station as well. Upon arrival, you can take bus no.202 to Wudangshanmen Station directly. After getting off the bus, you may walk backwards for about 65 yards (60 meters), and then walk around 330 yards (300 meters) along G316. Continue walking 22 yards (20 meters) to Wudang Road, and you can see the scenic spot directly.
