Railway authorities will run 80 bullet train trips every day on the Beijing-Zhangjiakou high-speed network to provide commuting services for the Winter Games. More train services will be provided during the opening and closing ceremonies.
Railway lines will shuttle participants, including athletes, media representatives and staff members, between the areas during the Games.
Four railway stations, including Qinghe and Yanqing in Beijing and Taizicheng in Zhangjiakou, will offer separate services from Jan 21 to March 16 to participants in the bubble and regular passengers, to comply with epidemic control protocols.
The stations will be divided into bubble and non-bubble areas. Participants who are required to stay within a biosecurity bubble during the Games will use the bubble areas at the stations, including designated bullet trains and platforms. Regular passengers can enter, wait and board the train in the non-bubble areas.
