But I then learned some more about the two routes and how they actually ran together on many roads in Wuxi. So more recently, after seeing the 635 from the 313, I decided to take the 313 a little further in hopes of it getting to a certain stop before the 635. What I then knew was that the 635 after making the turn at the intersection quickly made another turn after a block, so that it ran parrallel and in the same direction as the 313 -- there was a one block separation. So the 635 and 313 routes would ran parrallel and then converge as both routes made turns in the same direction, but only a block apart. The first stop after this convergence was where I got off in hopes that the 313 bus, I was on，got there before the 635.
And so I waited....
And a minute later, my gamble paid off. I was on a 635 and had saved myself 30 minutes of waiting.
**It is more accurate to say that the 313 route runs in both directions along European Street while the 635 only runs in one. But this detail will complicate the story.
