A new bullet train service from Shanghai to Chengdu will begin on July 1.

The train will leave Shanghai Hongqiao at 6:36am daily and arrive in Chengdu at 9:54pm. In the opposite direction, a train will leave Chengdu at 8am and arrive in Shanghai at 10:58pm.

The journey time will be 15 hours and 18 minutes, or more than 5 hours quicker than at present. Ticket prices have yet to be announced.

Also from next month a bullet train service will link Shanghai and Chongqing. It will shorten the journey to 13 hours and 18 minutes.

The new routes are designed to improve links in the Yangtze River Delta area and western Sichuan Province, Shanghai’s railways authority said.

Meanwhile, students can now buy train tickets up to 30 days in advance of their summer travels, instead of 20 days as before.
