Information as of March 2019:
 
It costs 95 yuan and leaves 3 times per day from the Dongzimen bus terminal at 7:30, 9:00, and 12:00, but double check that as it seems to fluctuate a bit, maybe there is less service during winter. Takes roughly 4 hrs and stops for lunch at Wolong. You can check for free seats and book through https://www.tz12306.com/ . Set Chengdu (成都) as starting point and Xiaojin (小金) as destination. Bus capacity is about 30-40 seats. You may have to fiddle around with the auto-suggestion of the input fields to select them. You can also buy them in advance at the bus station as tickets may sell out during the high seasons.
 
  
 
A better road exists between the city of Ya’an and Rilong, via the towns of Baoxing, Yaoji and Dawei.  This road is currently in much better condition than the road through Dujiangyan and Wolong.  Ya’an is approximately 2 hours south west of Chengdu via bus, and buses go directly from Chengdu to Ya’an or Baoxing.  Travellers can get a taxi or van from Baoxing to Rilong for 500-600yuan, or a cheaper option is to take a bus from Baoxing to Yaoji, and take a taxi to Rilong from there. The road crosses Mount Jiajin pass, which is around 4100masl, and also has some excellent views.  Expect this route to take a full day.

The least direct way to get to Rilong is to catch a bus to the city of Xiaojin from Chengdu, and then pay 20yuan for a seat in a van for the final 55km to Rilong.  This route passes through Ya’an and the cities of Luding and Danba, and has excellent views. There is only one stop along the way, however, and the total travel time on the bus is around fourteen hours.
