Public Transport

There is an extensive and reliable bus network in Hangzhou, although bus schedules are all in Chinese only. Buses with a "Y" prefix are the ones that circulate among the tourist hot spots. Tickets can be bought directly from the driver (a bus card may be purchased at kiosks in advance). There is also a developing subway network. There are two railway stations in Hangzhou, one is New Railway Station (Cheng Zhan), used as the main station and the other is East Railway Station, that serves as the terminus.
