The insurance they might say you can't get on the bus without in Gansu, particularly Lanzhou and Linxia, and occasionally Tianshui, is a complete scam. If you buy it, you are essentially aggreeing *not* to sue if something happens to you on the road.
Best bet - don't buy tickets at the window. Just find the bus you need and get on it. They will ask for your ticket, give them the money and they'll go buy one for you.
Traffic is very dangerous here. Drivers are acting like the road is theirs and no one else can drive there.
