Questions & Answers on Beijing - Zhangjiakou High Speed Train
Asked by Lange from NEW ZEALAND | Apr. 15, 2020 17:54Reply
Is there anyone knows how to reach Beijing North Station by subway?
Answers (2)
Answered by Ruben from AUSTRALIA | Apr. 19, 2020 17:21

There is no direct subway stop at this station, but Xizhimen station is not far away. If you want to go by subway, you can use line 2, line 4 and line 13 and get off at Xizhimen, then you can walk to there.
Answered by Steve | Feb. 13, 2021 23:03

I would suggest a slight modification to Reuben’s response. Xizhimen Station IS the subway station for Beijing North Railway Station. In fact, it connected directly by pedestrian tunnels to the station. It is served by lines 13, 4, and 2 as he said. However, I think his answer gives the impression that the Railway Station is some great distance from the subway station when, in fact, it’s a huge interchange which is also connected to a huge shopping mall (of course). The walking distance is not as short as one might hope, however, it’s weather and luggage friendly.

Yes, the trains are in service now. The ticket price is CNY27 per ticket one way from Beijing North to Badaling Great Wall Station, 7 rides a day each way. There is no news about the S2 line, I suppose they should still use Huangtudian station and Badaling Station as they are different rail line.
