Guangzhou North Railway Station is located in the Huadu District, a bit far from the city center. It is about 27 kilometers from Guangzhou Railway Station. The North station was a small one on Beijing-Guangzhou Railway. For the opening of Wuhan-Guangzhou High-speed Railway, it was closed since October 10 and underwent a two-month renovation. As one end of the Wuhan-Guangzhou Railway, the new train station is equipped with automatic ticket selling and checking system, which is a great benefit to passengers.
Wuhan-Guangzhou trains start to operate since December 26. In the first period, there are 26 pairs of high speed trains launching from this station. 21 pairs of those trains end in Wuhan Railway Station and five of them end in Changsha South Railway Station. These train numbers start with letter G’ and end with even numbers. The first express train leaving here is G1022 at 07:00 to Wuhan and the last G1058 at 19:20 to Changsha South. There are two kinds of tickets, costing CNY490 for second class seats and CNY780 for the first class. It greatly shortens the distance to Wuhan. The fastest trains will finish the whole journey within 3 hours.
How to get to the Station
|Waiting Room |
Compared with other two railway stations, the north one is far from the city center and not easy to reach. At present, there are six long-distance bus stations offer special line to this north station. The six bus stations are: the City Passenger Transport Station (also City Bus Terminal), Tianhe Bus Station, Dongpu Bus Station, Fangcun Bus Station, Jiaokou Bus Station and Passenger Bus Station of the East Railway Station. The frequency of those special buses is high. There is a bus leaving every 15 minutes and shorter in busy times from the City Bus Terminal, every 20 minutes from Jiaokou Bus Station. Others are more or less the same situation. The operating hour is around 06:00 to 20:00. Generally, it takes around one hour from those stations to the North Railway Station, while on the contrary, the buses from here can only get to the City Bus Terminal, Tianhe Bus Station and Jiaokou Bus station. There are fewer choices back to the city center. In weekdays while the city transportation is busy, it is better to choose subway to reach those bus stations.
In front of this train station, there are two squares, the west and the east. The exit for Wuhan-Guangzhou speed trains is located in the west square. These two squares are not very close from one to the other. It takes 25 minutes for walking. To meet friends here, passenger had better get off at Huadu Bus Station which is nearer to the exit. Nearby the exit, there are free shuttle buses to Huadu Bus Station.
The exit is a bit far from the main hall of the railway station. It is not very convenient for passenger to buy the ticket for a return ticket. 30 minutes' walk is needed from the exit to the ticket counters inside the hall.
