Hi, hereunder is the answers for your questions. Hope it is helpful.
1. The interval time between each bus is about 10 minutes and no more than half an hour. The coach fare is around CNY20.00.
2. As far as I know, there are only two coaches available from Datong to Mt. Wutai, which depart at 07:30 and 09:30 in the morning from Datong.
3. If you want to climb both east peak and south peak within one day, you can start your journey at around 7:30 in the morning. For the van, you may ask the hotel you staying whether they offer such rent service or not and let them help you.
4. From Mt. Wutai to Taiyuan, you may choose to take a train directly and the ticket fare is about CNY60.00 per person. The train journey will last about 4 hours.
