      I would suggest playing safe to book a particular train in advance. I made a mistake a few weeks ago in Shanghai that waiting until two days earlier to book it and only to find out that my top three trains were sold out (it's not Shanghai to Beijing route, but there were still >30 trains for that day) While I was lucky to get a ticket for that day, it did disrupt my schedule. The Awards recognize APTA transportation systems that have implemented programs or initiatives that have achieved documented success in addressing specific safety or security program areas. NOMINATIONS ARE NOW OPEN. Award Categories Safety and Security Excellence Awards are presented in three categories which are derived from the National Transit Database. For a more .

    The Chinese government, which owns and operates all domestic rail companies, launched the country's first high-speed service in and now boasts 9, kilometers (5, miles) of high-speed.   Any debate about the future of high-speed rail must consider where this mobility option fits into the 'big picture' of how transportation systems meet looming economic, energy and environmental.

    High speed rails are a type of train system which provides fast and quick access within a specific network infrastructure. High speed rail systems are significantly faster than traditional rail systems. The first working high-speed rail system, commonly known as the “bullet trains”, was introduced in . High-speed train is the latest and most modern train with air-conditioning and comfortable seat, and with a lowest speed of km per hour, and its serial number is started with G. Beijing-Shanghai high speed train operates with a speed of km per hour. D series of high speed bullet train is also fast, but its speed is a bit lower than that of G series high- speed train which travels.
