Xiamen-Chengdu high-speed rail route debuts
Tickets are currently on sale for the new high-speed rail route linking the cities of Chengdu and Xiamen.
Beginning on Sunday, the new line departs from Xiamen North station at 6:50 a.m. and arrives in Chengdu at 8:29 p.m. Ticket prices begin at 1,038 yuan.
The new route passes through Guizhou and Chongqing, easing travel routes between Xiamen and southwest China. The new service will affect non-bullet train service because of the elimination of ordinary-speed rail service on the portion of the Yingtan-Xiamen Railway from Jiaomei to the North Sanming station.
