Luoyang station to Longmen Grottoes Question.

We are planning to get a train from Xian to Longmen. How do we get to Longmen Grottoes from Luoyang Station? Is it walkable or do we have to hire a coach/bus or taxi will do. What about fromLongmen Grottoes to SHaolin Temple. Appreciate any feedbacks.

Simply take a taxi, cost may not reasonable but better than you wait for half hr and get on a wrong bus.

I am worrying about the driver may not want to earn only 10 rmb for such short ride. Also same problem for the return way.
