Tips for taking buses:
1. Bus stops in Shanghai are always named by the road, and several stops with the same name are often very far away, or stops with different names actually are the same stop, so you can not fully trust the bus line table. Before setting off you’d better ask someone who is familiar with the bus lines.
2. Because of a large number of one-way streets existing in Shanghai, the up and down routes of the same line are often stop at different stops. If you want to take the same bus back, you should know whether the returning bus passing the same stop.
3. You can spent 5 yuan to buy the newest Shanghai public transportation map which marks all the bus lines and site name.
