Experience a day in Hangzhou Asian Games Village
Greeted by mascots and transported by autonomous buses
After taking Line 6 of the subway to the Asian Games Village station, the reporters located the entrance to the Media Village, where they completed the necessary formalities and passed through security checks before entering the Media Village and immediately spotting the Asian Games mascots on the traffic lights.

With the traffic light green, the mascot Chenchen illuminated the pedestrian crossing, offering the visitors a charming and creative welcome to the village.
The mascots were ubiquitous throughout the village, with some of the roads even being aptly named after them.
They proceeded to the shuttle bus station, where two types of shuttle buses are available: the commonly-seen electric sightseeing bus and the recently-introduced autonomous driving bus. The latter, which has no driver but is equipped with a safety officer, transported the reporters to their accommodation after a simple press of the "Start Autonomous Driving" button.
A luggage shuttle truck followed the passenger shuttle bus, sparing them the burden of carrying their own luggage onto the shuttle. Luggage was delivered directly to the accommodations.
