Nansha Passenger Port in Guangzhou inaugurated a direct water bus route to Fuyong Ferry Terminal near the Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport on June 28. The new service slashes the travel time from at least one hour and a half by road to only about 35 minutes.

The ferry route marks the first marine highway between Guangzhou and Shenzhen and efficiently bridges both sides of the Pearl River. Inter-city travel now becomes much easier through the speedy ferry service.

Passengers from Nansha can arrive at the Fuyong Ferry Terminal after a 35-minute ferry journey. Upon disembarking from the ship, they can enjoy a free shuttle bus ride and reach Terminal 3 at the Shenzhen Airport in 10 minutes. This creates a seamless sea-air connection and can avoid being stuck in traffic, which greatly reduces time for frequent travelers.

Free shuttle buses run frequently between the Fuyong Ferry Terminal and the Shenzhen Airport during the daytime.

People in Guangzhou can take Metro Line 4 to the Nansha Passenger Port where three ferries trips are offered every day.

The route is served by two luxurious and energy-saving catamarans, each with a spacious interior to hold some 200 people. The boats are noise proof and have well-equipped facilities including luggage racks, phone charging sockets and accessible lavatories, delivering a smooth and pleasant travel experience for passengers.

Seats are divided into three classes: standard, first class and VIP with different pricing.

Notes:

1. A child under the height of 1.2 meters can travel with an adult passenger free of charge. Children with a height between 1.2 meters and 1.5 meters are required to buy a child ticket, while those over 1.5 meters should buy an adult ticket.

2. Those aged at 60 or above can buy a senior ticket.

3. Disabled veterans and aged persons are given priority in purchasing tickets.


Tickets are available for sale at both terminals or online through the official WeChat accounts of “珠江飞航” and “深圳机场码头”.

 

The water bus route will help to establish an integrated transportation system, enabling residents in Guangzhou and Shenzhen to live within an hour's commute. It is expected to expand further to connect the Pazhou Passenger Terminal currently being built in downtown Guangzhou. This will benefit more people and forge closer ties among cities in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

6月28日,广东省航运集团旗下广东省水上公交有限公司正式开通南沙客运港至深圳机场码头航线,单程仅需35分钟。这是广州第一条直航深圳的水上高速客运航线,将进一步助力粤港澳大湾区互联互通,为水上一小时生活圈增添新时速。

珠江口东西两岸的广州南沙和深圳隔江相望,一直未有水上巴士连通,南沙客运港-深圳机场码头航线的开通填补了这个空白,有效联结起珠江东西两岸城市群,利用“机场 码头”的空海联运模式构建全方位、立体化交通出行体系。

据了解,以往南沙及周边地区市民前往深圳机场搭乘飞机,需要经由虎门大桥或南沙大桥出行,单程用时在1个半小时以上,如果遇上堵车,所花费的时间会更长。此次深穗“水上巴士”开通后,旅客乘坐地铁四号线到南沙客运港站搭乘船班,35分钟即可抵达深圳机场码头,之后可无缝换乘免费接驳巴士前往航站楼,算上接驳时间,最快45分钟即可抵达深圳机场,比走陆路交通的时间缩短了一半。

航线专门建造的两艘豪华双体高速客船“新时速1”和“新时速2”各有199个客位,客舱座位分为普通舱、头等舱和贵宾舱,有针对性地满足不同旅客的出行需要。相比于普通客船,高速客船所有靠窗座位还增加了遮阳窗帘、电源及USB充电等功能,客舱内行李架、残疾人卫生间等配套一应俱全,具有航速更快、安全性能更好、空间更大、隔音效果更好等特点。

开航初期,深穗“水上巴士”每天往返各3班,共6个班次。船班时刻覆盖早、中、晚各时段,可满足旅客全天出行需求。票价按照不同舱位等级,从45~180元不等。

水上客运具有绿色环保、运力大、时间可控等优势,接下来,省航运集团将进一步提升运力、丰富水上交通产品线,有望将航线延伸至广州市市区,连接在建的琶洲港澳客运码头,为大湾区城市群居民提供更多元的出行选择。
