Ground transportation connections[edit]

Airport Express Shuttle Bus service is available on a single route from the airport to the Lanzhou Eastern Hotel, Tianshui Middle Road, opposite Lanzhou University western gate. The return service leaves from opposite the JJ Sun Hotel, Donggang West Road. Travel time is about one hour, due to the distant nature of airport from the city centre.

Taxi service is relatively expensive due to the long distance to the airport, about 150RMB. However there is little time travel advantage over the Airport Express bus.

The construction of a railway line between the airport and the city started on 2012-12-21. The construction project is expected to take 3–4 years. It is viewed as a part of a large Lanzhou railway hub reorganization project.[3]
