We get in to PVG at 3:25 pm and need to get to Ningbo. Can we take the bus directly from Pudong Airport to Ningbo? I have seen answers on the blog that say yes and others that say go to town and get bus or train. The train schedule does not look good if I am reading it right. (No train until 19:15) If there is a direct bus, does one leave around 4:30 or 5:00pm?
Is a bus from PVG to the bus station in Shanghai to get a bus to Ningbo a better idea, i.e. faster or cheaper?
There is direct bus from Pudong Airport to Ningbo. You have transit to train or long distance bus.
The best way is like this:
Pudong Airport to Ning Bo via Shanghai Railway Station
1. Take Airport Bus #5 to Shanghai Railway Station.
2. Buy train ticket from Shanghai to Ningbo.
Here is the train schedule:
|Train #||Shanghai ->||Ningbo||Duration||Distance (km)|
There are also lots of bus at the Train station to Ningbo.
Hope this helps.
