The airport buses running between Shandong Aviation Mansion in Jinan and Yaoqiang Airport are available from 6:00 am to 5:00 pm everyday, with an interval of one hour between buses.

Shandong possesses a high-grade transportation system, especially its advanced and convenient network of highways which extend in all directions. Shandong ranks number one for highway transportation in China. It is famous throughout China for the length and quality of its highways. So far, all 17 cities and prefectures of Shandong except Binzhou are connected by highways, and the total length of highways had reached 2,006 km. The Beijing-Shanghai highway passes through Dezhou, Jinan, Tai'an, and Linyi. The Jinan-Qingdao Expressway traverses the Shandong Peninsula, joining Jinan, Zibo, Weifang and Qingdao, and forms the central 'T' of Shanndong's highway network along with the Beijing-Shanghai highway.


Every day, there are passenger ships bound for Dalian from Yantai, Weihai, and Penglai on the Shandong Peninsula, and there are four high speed passenger ships from Yantai to Dalian. Qingdao, Weihai, and Yantai also have regular ships to Korea and Japan.
