China Intercity High Speed Trains
To make the travel among the large and busy cities more convenient, China has constructed intercity high speed railways, which carry frequent bullet trains every day just like city buses or subways do.
These high speed trains relieve the transportation pressure during high travel seasons.
Below are some major intercity high speed rail lines that have been put into use:
|Line||Open Date||Length (km)||Designed Speed (km/h)|
Beijing-Tianjin (Jingjin) Railway
It connects Beijing South and Tianjin. For the whole journey of 74 mi (120 km), it only takes about half an hour. Every day trains are very frequently scheduled from 06:30 to 23:00 every 5-10 minutes. Upon arrival at Beijing South, passengers can easily transfer to subway line 4. For passengers getting off at Tianjin, they can conveniently transfer to subway line 2, 3 and 9.
Shanghai-Nanjing (Huning) Railway
