Is the subway already in service at Chongqing West Station?

Not yet, bus and taxi are still the only 2 option. Or you may take a taxi to the nearest metro station and then use the metro service. The cost would be much lower.

Answered by Ransom from SINGAPORE | Apr. 18, 2019 19:07

It fully depends on the train type you will take. If by high speed type, for this trip, Kunming South Station is the only option. If for K1501 and K691, they use the main station near city center.

Taxi fare from Kunming south railway station to Kunming Changshui international airport?
I will take the G2889 from Chongqing to Kunming. Is there any public transportation from the south railway station to the airport? What’s the taxi fare?

Your train will arrive at 22:41, and I’m afraid there is no public transportation at that time. The taxi fee is around CNY130 at night.
