China High Speed Train Service

Fast Train between Beijing and Shanghai

Fast Train between Beijing and Shanghai

Traveling at a speed of 300km/hour (180 mph) the new high-speed rail link between Beijing and Shanghai will make the trip in just 4 hours and 45 minutes. 90 trains travelling will operate daily carrying 1004 passengers each.  Compared with 50 flights per day currently linking the two cities, the train system is expected to have a significant impact on the airline business.

Since trains rarely are delayed or affected by weather the new railway link is expected to be as fast as taking a flight and less expensive.   These services will give tourists greater flexibility in their schedules and help decrease the cost of tours.

The trains have business class, first class and second-class seating.  The train is schedule to open in late June.
