Is there a bus from Ningbo Lishe International Airport Arrival to Zhoushan?

Answered by Cameron from NETHERLANDS | Dec. 12, 2019 00:24

There is no direct transportation from airport to there. Upon landing, take metro line 2 to Ningbo Railway Station first. Then walk southwest around 400 meters to get to South Coach Station. There are many direct coaches that can take you to Zhoushan.

Answered by Dove from USA | Jul. 29, 2019 19:12

No, there isn't. You can take metro line 2 to Railway Station, then walk south of 400m to South Coach Station first. There are many buses one day to Dinghai. The bus departs from 5:55 to 22:00 with interval of 15-60 minutes with CNY51. .
Answered by D from USA | May. 26, 2020 23:10

YES! There are direct buses from NGB to Dinghai but there aren't that many and the last bus is somewhere between 5pm and 6pm. Sorry I don't have the times at the ready. If you're arriving in the evening, say after 4pm, then indeed your best option would be to catch a coach from the bus terminal outside of the Ningbo Railway Station.
