Traffic & Public Transportation
Chengdu has well developed public transportation system. With bus, metro, taxi or Uber/Didi you will have easy access to any destination.

Taxi fee starts from RMB 8-9 with an additional RMB 1.9/km. This fee may rise at night hours or long distance ride. At different hours, getting to SWUFE Guanghua Campus from Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport by taxi may cost around RMB 60-100. Please pay attention to choose authentic taxi at any time (number plate start with “川A T” and with a TAXI roof beacon) and use the price meter instead of negotiating prices with the driver.
