Answered by Kenneth from USA | Nov. 15, 2018 18:16

There is no 5-day subway card in this city, but one-day subway pass and 3-day subway pass available, respectively charging CNY15 and CNY40.
One pass can only be used by one person. You can choose to buy the pass according to your itinerary because the pass is provided at the customer service center in subway stations. Or just buy the single ticket when you take the subway for your convenience.

Dear James, you can take the airport shuttle bus Longhai Hotel Line and then walk about 3 minutes to Wulukou metro station to take the metro line 1. Then get off at North Street and walk about 7 minutes to your hotel.

North Railway Station is near the airport?? I have to go to xingqing campus of jiaotong uni from xian airport. Please guide me how to take metro. Where to pay. And can i carry my luggage bag in it?

Answered by Larry from CANADA | Aug. 12, 2018 22:52

The metro line 2 is not near the airport. If you want to take Metro Line 2 to Nanshaomen, you need to go through the safety check and then buy tickets in ticket machine. Surely you can take your luggage in it. If you want to go to Jiaotong uni, you can take Airport Bus East Second Ring Road Jianguo Hotel Line to Jianguo hotel and then walk about 300m to take Bus Line 48 to Shapocun Station. Get off the bus and walk about 100m, you can get there.
