Getting around

Local transport

Nánjīng has a new and efficient metro system that cuts through the centre of the city. There’s currently only one line, running from Màigāoqiáo in the north to the Olympic Sports Stadium in the southwest between 6.41am and 10pm. Tickets are Y2 to Y4.

Taxis cruise the streets of Nánjīng – most destinations in the city are Y8, but make sure the meter is switched on.

You can get to Xinjiekou, in the heart of town, by jumping on bus 13 from the train station or the Centre Gate. There are also tourist bus routes that visit many of the sites. Bus Y1 goes from the train and Zhōngyāng Mén bus station through the city to the Sun Yatsen Mausoleum. Bus Y2 starts in the south at the Martyrs’ Cemetery, passes Fuzi Temple and terminates halfway up Zijin Mountain.

Many local maps contain bus routes. Normal buses cost Y1 and tourist buses cost Y2.
