Time tables

All lines of the Beijing Underground Traffic System start operations shortly after 5 am and end around 11 am. The frequency of trips depends on the capacity of the particular route and also on the specific day and time. A more detailed timetable can be found on site or on the Metro website.

Bus transportation

You can also easily use the bus service. You will use the same card as the metro. Timetable information can be found on site or on some websites without any problems.


There is also a taxi in the city. You can call him only on the street or in the places where the taxi is usually standing. For us Europeans, it is a relatively inexpensive way of transport, and taxis are on every corner. However, it is important to arrange the price in advance, otherwise, you are at risk that your local taxi drivers will get you more money than you would like.

However, we recommend that you use the UBER application, where you have the first free coupon for free!
