Public Transport in China

Information on train, tram, metro, bus and coach services to, from and around China…

As China covers such a vast area and has such a large population, the public transport system is of considerable national importance. There is a huge network of bus and train routes connecting cities and towns across the country, and the Chinese government has invested heavily in updating and improving the transport infrastructure in recent years.

Although the transportation systems in China are generally modern, reliable and technologically advanced, due to the large number of people using public transport (especially during Chinese festivals and peak holiday times), buses and trains can be extremely busy, and pre-booking at least two or three days ahead is highly recommended.
