Thank you for your inquiry.

It is not confirmed yet if there will be direct trains departing from Tianjin. If not, passengers can make a transfer in Beijing first. The duration for transfer option should be around 4 hours according to the current news. It is still much shorter than normal trains which take more than 11 hours on the way.
