Learning the city part two: bus routes

10/23/2013

Another way to learn your way around the city is to learn the bus routes. (I have yet to accomplish this task). I know many of you love the buses and I’m glad. I personally prefer modes of transportation that can travel in the bike lane. But, for those of you who don’t mind waiting for the buses, or crowding on, or standing up to get where you’re going, here’s the first round of pin yin-ified bus routes for you. I’ll work on completing this task, but I thought I’d get what I had finished up. I’ll also put them on the around the city page. (when I figure out a better format, ugh.)

Some considerations about the bus system:
-Routes 1, 2, 3, and 4 are free as part of some kind of “green” initiative the city has.
-Most local friends say that the biggest hold up/slow down on the bus routes in when the buses have to go to/by the train station. So, if there’s an option to choose a bus that doesn’t pass or stop at the train station it will generally be faster.
-Supposedly Hohhot is planning on adding 400 new buses a year for the next ten years, so hopefully the traffic situation will improve as more buses are added.

And so, for the third or fourth try in three different formats in two days ….here is the first round of bus routes. I’ll work on completing the rest and making them in a more user friendly format in the future. But for today, this is what you get.
