Jinshan to get closer to downtown with new rail

It will only take locals about half an hour and 10 yuan (US$1.6) to reach Jinshan on the southern edge of Shanghai when the first direct rail route to the suburban district enters service on September 28, its operator said today.

The Jinshan Railway Line runs from Shanghai South Railway Station to Jinshan New Town on the Hangzhou Bay. It will use bullet trains that travel in two modes. One is non-stop; the other stops at each station.

The non-stop service will take 32 minutes to complete the whole trip, while the slower service will take about an hour to finish the nine-stop journey.

The current bus service takes more than an hour for Jinshan residents to get to downtown.

The new railway will charge fares from 3 yuan to 10 yuan. Passengers can use their public transport cards to buy tickets and enjoy discounts for bus and Metro transfers.
