The earliest train G8954 departs from Shijiazhuang Station at 6:46am and arrives at 7am. As it is an early morning trip, it is better to collect your paper tickets out before travel day in case there is any delay.

What amount of time should be allocated for a train connection at Shijiazhuang?
Will 20 minutes be sufficient for transit between two G trains?
Answers (1)
Answered by Jose | May. 06, 2019 00:46

20min is possible if you already have paper tickets in hand already. However, if you are a first time travelers, it maybe a little risky as it may take you some time to find out the way back to waiting hall. If possible, maybe 30min would be a little safer. If no other suitable trains, you can try with that 20min connection. When you are about to reach Shijiazhuang Station, you can ask the train staff about the nearest door to the "transfer" passage and wait there in advance. Once you reach the station, you can hold the ticket for second trip and back to waiting hall.

Thank you

Answered by Nash from ITALY | Jun. 29, 2018 02:47

You can try the airport shuttle bus line 3. The airport says the time for shuttle bus would match the flight schedule. So if you have a flight which will land at the airport around 2am, there should be able to find a bus to the railway station.
