How do I take bus from Shenyang airport to yinkou? What is the bus schedule from Shenyang airport to yinkou? Where is the closest bus terminal from Shenyang airport so I can take a bus to yinkou?

There is no bus from Shenyang Airport to Yingkou. You can take the airport express bus to Shenyang Bus Station, which costs CNY17 per person and takes around 1 hour. From there, you can take bus to Yingkou, which takes about 3 hours.

What is the best route to go from Shenyang Airport to bus terminal. Need to take bus to Meihekou, Jilin.
Dear Barry, It is about 27 km from the airport to North bus station(北站长途汽车客运站)(address: No.59 Tuanjie Road/惠工广场团结路59号). You could take a taxi directly and it costs about CNY100/US$16 per car. You also could take a shuttle bus from the airport to Maluwan(马路湾)(around CNY20/US$3.3 per person), then take a taxi to the bus station( about CNY20/US$3.3 per car). Lussie Lu replied on 2013-06-03

Hi Bob, if the taxi driver blackmail you, call the complaints hotline which is available on their car, do remember their taxi number.
