After arriving at the Beijing International Airport, visitors can take a taxi to get to PKU. The distance between the Airport and the campus is about 30 km and the trip takes about 45 min, costing about 150 yuan. Please also ask the driver for the receipt if you need the reibursement.

The subway is a good way to quickly get around the city and is well-signed in English for travelers. However, be warned that during rush hour trains can be extremely crowded. The subway system shuts down around midnight, and opens again around 5 AM. Lines are currently as follows:

  • Line 1 - Red runs from the industrial Pingguoyuan area in the west to Sihui East in eastern Beijing. It has 21 stops and follows Chang'an Dajie, the main avenue of Beijing. It links Xidan, Tian'anmen East and West, Wangfujing, Dongdan, Guomao, and Yong'anli. Transfer stations are at Fuxingmen (Line 2), Jianguomen (Line 2), and Sihui/Sihui East (Batong Line).
  • Line 2 - Dark Blue is also called the Loop Line and follows the 2nd Ring Road. Major stops of interest include Qianmen, a major transportation hub as well as an attraction in its own right. Transfer stations are at Fuxingmen (Line 2), Jianguomen (Line 2), Xizhimen (Line 13), and Dongzhimen (Line 13).
  • Line 4 - This line is most convenient for PKU because one of the stops is the East Gate of Peking University. It intersects Lines 1, 2, and 6.
  • Line 5 - Purple is Beijing's first north-south subway line. Useful stops include the Temple of Heaven (Tiantan Dongmen).
  • Line 6 - This line runs east-west, parallel to Line 1 but slightly north of it.
  • Line 8 - Green (Olympic Branch) connects Line 10 to the Olympic Village. The Olympic Green station is about a 10 minute walk from the Chinese Academy of Sciences campus that hosts the National Astronomical Observatories (NAOC).
