Generally speaking, the international students mainly stay on Wangjiang campus of Sichuan University (四川大学望江校区).  Thus, we focus on the public transportation around Wangjiang campus (望江校区).

Firstly, let us have a view on how can we get on a bus.

In Wangjiang campus there will be four gates with several bus stations located near them.  Here comes the details of these stations specifically as the map below shows.

Tips for choosing public bus:

You can apply for an IC card and by using it you can buy ticket with a fifty percent discount.  And it is easy to get such a card. All you need to do is find a network spot to manage this quickly.

What’s more, like many other big cities in the world, you’d better avoid going out during the rush hours(7:30-9:00am, 11:00-13:00pm,17:00-19:00pm).

Secondly, subway might be another choice for you to consider.  Subway is a relatively new transportation as for Chengdu and there are only two lines in this city.  But the government is determined to develop subway to make it more convenient for citizens, so more lines would be built in the near future.

Regarding international students in Wangjiang campus, we have two possible paths to get on the subway.

A. provincial gymnasium station, line 1

Specifically speaking, determined by where are you, walk to the nearest bus station to take a bus to the South First Ring Road then continue walking (about 160m) to the provincial gymnasium subway station.

B. Niuwang Temple station, line 2

As what mentioned before, take a bus to Niuwang Temple station and walk for about 180m to Niuwang Temple subway station.

About the price for subway, it depends on how far your destination would be. The initial price might be 2 yuan.
