Fares set for fast Shanghai-Nanjing rail

STANDARD tickets for the highly anticipated Shanghai-Nanjing high-speed rail line have been priced at 146 yuan, almost a 50 percent rise compared with current bullet trains for the same trip.

Shanghai railway authorities released the railway's ticket prices and operation models today.

The railway, with a top speed of 350 kilometers per hour, will start operation from July 1, connecting the city to Nanjing in 73 minutes.

People can buy the tickets tomorrow from 8am.

However, some passengers complained that the ticket is expensive. Bullet trains now between the two cities, at 250km/h, cost 93 yuan.

The high-speed train, with the leading letter "G", will operate from Hongqiao Transport Hub and Shanghai Railway Station with more than 200 train services each day, almost one train every five minutes.
