How long does it take from Zhengzhou station to Zhengzhou East station by metro?
I will connect a train in 2 hours, is it enough?

Answered by Alex from UK | Jun. 30, 2020 17:56

The metro line 1 can take you there, and it takes about 35 minutes. If you only have 2 hours in between, you still need to hurry up since you still need to enter the train station and find the correct waiting area for your next train.
