I have never seen a comprehensive bus route map in English for any Chinese city and that includes Beijing and Shanghai. My suggestion is to get one in Chinese that is graphically easy to read. Even if you can't read Chinese characters, you should be able to recognize city layout with major landmarks, learn characters for the most major boulevards, and read the numbers and follow the route lines.

Even without reading Chinese, I'd take a good Chinese language bus route map over a crappy, incomplete English one any day.

http://ditu.google.com is useful at the zoom-in level, to pretty accurately identify bus stop locations and the routes served for each. This is helpful if you have a common journey between two points to figure out, but of course does not replace a holistic bus route map.

The map can expire soon after published. Bus schedule of China are something dynamically changing.

I doubt that there is such a thing in english for Xi'An. It does not even exist for Beijing. I have seen a Beijing bus map of Beijing, it is actually a book.

I find best to use Google maps. When you zoom in enough you see all the bus stops. Then you can use the "directions" function to figure out which buses will get you from here to there.

I'm with kvchina that we can just know some main places in Chinese character, see it on the bus signage, and take the bus passing there. It works for me in China.
