How to take a Chengdu Bus to Tourist Attractions

Taking a bus is not always so easy if you don’t know which one you have to take or which stop you have to get off. So we prepared a few tourist attractions where you can go to by bus. Just make sure you’re going in the right direction!

Bus fare is 2 RMB for an airconditioned bus and 1 RMB for non-airco.

Have fun!

The Chengdu Public Transportation provides a SMS service that allows passengers to check bus route information via text message. The service is only available in Chinese but the menu is relatively easy to navigate.

Follow these simple steps:

1. Send the letters “GJ” to 10628106

2. The system will send you a message. If you would like to pay a monthly unlimited-use fee of 1.2 RMB, send “GJ” to 1062810628. If you prefer to pay a one-time use fee of 0.3 mao per message, send “GJ” to 1062810629. (The first message is free)

3. The system sends you another message telling you to reply to it with one of the following:

  • If you want to check all the stops on one line, send “XL” + [the number of the bus line you want to check]
  • If you want to check which lines run between two points, send “ZC” + [the name of the bus stop you’re departing from] 到 [the name of the bus stop you’re going to], e.g., “ZC 天府广场到火车北站”
  • If you want to check locations where you can top up your bus pass, send “CZD”
  • If you want to check the amount left on your pass pass, send “CY”

4. If you do it right, you’ll receive a message with the information you requested. If not, you’ll receive a message describing with examples how to format your SMS.

It is best to know the precise names of the stops; the search functions don’t work properly if you put in just a street name or landmark.
