A very cheap way to get around in Changchun is by bus (only 1 yuan per ride). However, this works best if you can read Mandarin and are a bit familiar with the city. You could try to ask other people to help you choose which bus to take. Just as with taxi's you never have to wait long for a bus; if you miss one, the next one will follow in just a few minutes.
The most convenient way of transportation within Changchun is (like most other cities in China) by taxi.
