Tanya, there is no night bus from downtown to the airport. You may need to take a taxi to go there at a cost of CNY 150~200.


Are there shuttle buses from the airport to the near by hotels? We are staying at the Days Hotel New Exhibition Centre and it's only 1km away from the airport.

Thank you

Hi, dear! The first shuttle bus departs at around 7:00. You may take Airport Express from PEK to Dongzhimen Station, and change to metro line 2 to Chongwenmen Station, Exit B1. The first train departs at 6:22 from T3; 6:36 from T2. The fare totals CNY28, and the trip takes about 45 minutes.

Or, you may take a taxi to the hotel. The fare may be around CNY 90. :)

You can exit the train station by following the English guiding signs. Then, walk east along BJ Railway Station East Street for about 250 yards, and turn right. Walk south for about 100 yards to catch the shuttle bus line 3. By the way, the bus fare is CNY 24, and the trip takes about 50 minutes. You can make it! Don't worry! :)

Hello! Can you use the standard blue Subway card to purchase the airport bus tickets? Thanks!

First of all, I'd tell your time is enough for transfer. No worry! It is best to take a taxi to commute between. It takes around 50min and the charge can be CNY120-130.

We are a group of 10 senior citizens staying at Howard Johnson Paragon Hotel near the Beijing railway station. Do these airport shuttle bus provide luggage space for passengers as each of us have a medium size trolley luggage and wondering whether it is convenient or not?

Kindly advise urgently

Hi, it is allowed to take along your luggage onto the shuttle bus. If the size is a little large, the bus has luggage compartment beneath. Just take it easy!

Im arriving at Beijing Int. airport at 0.20 am. Going to Novotel Xinqiao which transport is convenience and economical. Pls advice.

It is suggested to take airport shuttle bus line 2 (Night Line) and get off at International Hotel station. Then your hotel is around 1.6km away. Just take a taxi to reach in minutes.

Hi, I have a flight from Nanyuan airport at 20.05 but the last scheduled airport bus from Xidan is stated as 15.00. It also says 'The departure times of the airport buses from/to Nanyuan Airport are adjusted according to the times of the scheduled flights of the day.' but how can I find out the times of the buses for my flight? Thanks

Nick ( Austria ) :3/23/2015 11:01:25 PM

You are right with the info of the last bus to the airport from Xidan, 15:00. The sentence you quoted means that the frquency of the buses (06:10 - 15:00) is adjusted according to the flights' schedule, so no bus suits your flight timing.

I am travelling by train to Beijing and arrive 6pm. My flight is at 9;30pm same day. I am really worried about making the flight. Do you know the time frames for bus, train or taxi to terminal 2 Beijing airport? I am scared traffic might delay taxi or bus, but rain may also be peak and I have a large bag, hope you can advise.
Thanks Helen.

To be honest, you don't have enough to catch your flight. You will meet the rush hours and there will be traffic jam. Considering all, I would suggest you change another flight departing later.

Hi, coming from the Capital Airport, we plan to ride Airport Shuttle Bus #2 and go down at Beijing Int'l hotel. From here, what city bus should we ride to reach Nanheyan Street, Dongcheng District. Thanks

Bus no. 52 or 120 would help. Walk from the International Hotel to Beijng Zhankoudong bus stop to take either of the buses and get off at Tiananmen East. Then walk east to Nanheyan Street.

From the airport to the hotel, you can take shuttle bus line 2 to Yonghegong Lama Temple. Then use local subway line 5 to get off at Dengshikou. Get out from exit C and you can walk there in 650 meters.

To catch a plane that early, the best and the only way shall be taking a taxi.

if you plan for winter cloth shopping in Xidan, i suggest that you stay longer in the airport, as most shops and markets won't open until 09:00.
airport bus line 2 runs to Xidan directly, so you may consider take the bus rather than subway.

salina ishak ( Malaysia ) :11/24/2013 7:43:46 PM

tq wendy. my hotel at shizi hutong. but im planning to drop by to xidan for winter cloth shopping. so I want to wait at Beijing airport before going by bus or train to xidan in the morning.

Wendy :11/24/2013 7:20:30 PM

you mean your hotel in Beijing city?
it is possible for you to wait at the airport.
you can take the subway airport express line, and the first subway leaves the airport at 06:21 for terminal building 3 and 06:35 from T2.

there are airport shuttle buses as long as there is flight arriving at the airport.
so you can take the airport shuttle bus nightline to Xidan, and then take a taxi to the hotel. the bus fare is CNY16 per person and the taxi fare is about CNY20.
