The Tourism No 2 route is nearly 13 kilometers long and has a total of 13 bus stops including Huacheng Square, Guangdong Museum, Guangzhou Library and Guangzhou Opera House. It not only enables tourists to enjoy the most magnificent views of Guangzhou's central business district (CBD), but gives them a chance to see its iconic spots like the Pearl River and Canton Tower.
The electric buses running on the route have a maximum range of 200 kilometers and feature a glass ceiling on the second floor. Passengers taking the bus will also be given an introduction of the tourism attractions via a smart audio broadcasting system featuring nine languages.
The buses also offer passengers services such as route guidance, interchange information, and bus driver evaluation using a special system operated from their smart phones.
