Xiamen BRT (Bus Rapid Transit) has been one of the most popular public transport options in Xiamen since its debut in 2008.

Currently, there are six operational BRT lines in Xiamen. In 2018, three new stations — Wenta Station/文塔站, Tong'an Interchange Station/同安枢纽站, and Gaoqi Airport Interchange Station/高崎机场枢纽站 — are expected to be put into service.

The BRT stations will accept WeChat and Alipay payment for passengers' convenience.

According to the Xiamen Public Transport Group, Gaoqi Airport Interchange Station and Tong'an Interchange Station are expected to be put into service in the second half of 2018.

Meanwhile, construction on Wenta Station is scheduled to be launched this July and be completed by the end of this year. The newly planned Wenta BRT Station is about 50 meters away from Xiamen Metro Line 1's Wenzao Station.

Currently, daily passenger flow on the BRT has reached 300,000. The new BRT stations aim to ease traffic pressure, and create the possibility of opening new BRT lines.
