China plans to swiftly launch the fastest bullet train

China, which has the world’s largest high-speed rail network, plans to launch its fastest bullet train at a standard operating speed of 450 km/h. Passengers would find it more appealing to travel on lengthy routes across China on the newest high-speed rail due to its modern amenities.

Currently, bullet trains travel between 200 and 350 km per hour. As many as 2,800 pairs of these bullet trains of G, D and C categories are running daily connecting over 550 cities across China and covering 33 of China’s 34 provinces.

Since the establishment of this nationwide network of high-speed trains in China, intercity travel has changed significantly, and airlines’ dominance on the busiest routes has crumbled as most customers now prefer to take these trains. These high-speed trains carry millions of passengers across China.

More than two-thirds of the world’s high-speed rail network, or 42,000 km, are found in China, which has a total track length of 155,000 km. By the end of 2025 and 2035, China’s high-speed rail network is anticipated to reach 50,000 km and 200,000 km, respectively.
