There are seven long-distance bus stations in town and four state-level and five province-level expressways passing the city. However, as Lanzhou is located in the east of Gansu Province, far from the tourist cities in the Hexi Corridor, railroad is often more preferable to motorway. For the south of Gansu Province where no train is available, bus is the only option.
The Eastern Bus Station: 0931-8418441, 8418411 (Pingliang Road)
The Western Bus Station: 0931-2334575, 2333285 (Xijinxi Road)
