Bus Stops at Shanghai
A tall post with a plate on the top, which looks like a flag, indicates a bus stop. One plate stands for one bus line. If the stop serves three bus lines, it will have three plates.
Some bus stops have a shelter, which may make it easy to recognize a bus stop. But those without a shelter could be missed because they may be hiding behind sidewalk trees and telegraph poles.
Where To Find A Bus Stop
Shanghai's bus stops are generally near intersections, and a stop is usually named after the closest road intersecting the road the bus running on.
How To Read A Bus Stop
On one side, the plate shows the route number, the stop name and the next stop. The other side displays all the stops along the route, fares and the time when the first bus and the last bus will arrive at the stop. They are all in Chinese.
