1. It can be used to search all of the bus and subway routes in Beijing City, partial of the buses to suburban Beijing such as 919 to Badaling, as well as the airport shuttle buses of the Capital International Airport. 
2. The bus/subway transport to the major hotels are also collected and added to our data base, such as Subway Line 1 and Bus No.s 103 (trolley), 104 (trolley), 10, 120, 126, 1, 20, 37, 41, 420, 52 to Beijing Hotel.
3. Most of the bus routes are named with Arabic numbers for the convenience of management. In general, they are divided into the following categories:
Bus No.s 1-99 run within the 3rd Ring Road;
No.s 100-199 are trolleys, running within the 2nd Ring Road;
No.s 200-299 are night routes, operation between 23:00 to 05:00 of the next day;
No.s 300-699 run between the downtown area and the suburb;
No.s 700-799 run for a long distance, some of which are charged by distance;
No.s begin with 8 or 9 are lines to the outer suburbs of Beijing
4. Almost all of the bus stops were given the names from their nearby symbolic buildings or architectures, roads especially crossroads, scenic spots, hotels, restaurants, hospitals, schools and so on. However, there may be several bus stops set around the same building or road. Take the well-known Tiananmen for example, there are altogether four stops distributed its east and west, namely, Tiananmen East, Tiananmen Square East, Tiananmen West and Tiananmen Square West.
5. To decrease the translation difference between Chinese and English, the Chinese Pinyin of the bus stops enjoys a priority in our searching system.

Questions & Answers on Beijing Bus/Subway Search
  • What bus takes me from near Beijing University to the Botanical Gardens? The Rough Guide to Beijing says to use the # 333 from Yuanmingyuan, but another source didn't mention the # 333 leaving from there.

    Is there an online guide to all the buses, including a map of the routes?
