Longmen grottoes, Shaolin temple and White Horse one day tour

I am in luoyang and I have a full day to visit. I want to go see the LM grottoes, the shaolin temple and if possible the white horse temple.
I read the forums here and information is confusing so please help with the following questions:

1. Is there a direct bus from longmen grottoes to shaolin temple? Iis there a bus the other way around (from temple to grottoes)?
f yes, what are the times and duration of the rides?
Is it better to see the grottoes first and the shaolin temple after?
3. Would it make sense to see the grottoes at night? I saw they close at 19:50, but someone said they are open till 22:00. Would it make sense to see them at night?
4. Would I have time for white horse temple also in a day? (I will leave luoyang at 01 am, so i will basically have a day and half a night to visit)

Thabk you very much for the help

I heard the direct buses exist. From the grottoes, the buses at at 10:30 and 15:30 and from Shaolin Temple, they are at 13:30 and 16:30. The buses only operate during the tourism peak season, so you are still suggested to consult at the LM Grottoes square for consulting.

It is better to see the grottoes first.

At night, only a part of the grottoes are open and the attraction will close at around 22:40. At night, the grottoes are lightened by thousands of lights and they are still beautiful.

One day is so tight for both the shaolin temple and the grottoes if you travel on your own, so it is hard to visit the baima Temple, since it will be closed at night. If you really want to see the Baima Temple, you can head for Shaolin Temple first, then baima temple and visit the grottoes at night.
