With the 5G network provided by China Telecom, the bus can send data regarding passenger volume, bus station statuses, and driver's behavior to help Guiyang Public Traffic Company with operation and dispatch.

From May 5 to 29, the bus will stop at Liuguangmen, Yunyan Square, Pengshuichi, Dashizi, the former site of Dade School, Guiyang First Hospital, Daximen, Renmin Avenue (middle), the intersection of Qianling West Road, Renmin Avenue (north), and Liuguangmen bus station.

From May 29 to September, the bus will run between Beijing Road, Huansha Road, Jiefang Road, and Baoshan Road.

The bus will operate between Wednesday to Sunday and run twice per day. Interested riders can take the bus according to the signs on the bus stations. Each bus can take 15 passengers only to ensure they can have a high-tech riding experience.
