Chongqing North Railway Station Overview

There are three railway stations in Chongqing City: Chongqing Railway Station (Caiyuanba), North Railway Station (formerly known as the Longtou Temple Station), and South Railway Station (Jiulongpo). Chongqing has five major railway lines: the Chengdu-Chongqing railway, the Sichuan-Guizhou railway, the Xiangyu railway, the Yuhuai railway, and the Suining-Chongqing Railway. There is another minor line also: the Daiwang Railway that goes to the Three Gorges Reservoir Area. The first three major lines pass through the Chongqing Railway Station in the center of the city. The last two railways (Yuhuai and Suining-Chongqing) go through the Chongqing North Railway Station. From either station, you can travel all over China.

Of the three train stations, the stations with the most passengers are the Chongqing Railway Station and the North Railway Station. The former is an old railway station located in the Yuzhong District of Chongqing City. Right next to the Chongqing Railway Station is the Caiyuanba Bus Station that has the most routes in Chongqing City. However, the disadvantage is that the area is not as modern. On the other hand, the North Railway Station is located in the Yubei District of Chongqing City, and it is newly built. The surroundings are much better than that of the Chongqing Railway Station. Moreover, its facilities are better. From the North Railway Station, you can catch bullet trains that go to Chengdu. However, the flaw in all the perfect things is that the North Railway Station is far away from the main city.

Chongqing North Railway Station, formerly known as the Longtou Temple Station, was opened in 2006 when the Yuhuai railway line officially started in service. At present, in the Shapingba Station, there are only a small number of terminals available for the trains from Chongqing Railway Station to stop. Chongqing North Railway Station and Chongqing Railway Station can both sell the tickets of the other station, and require no service fees for doing this. Passenger transport tickets can also be bought from Shapingba Station, but only CRH tickets (for bullet trains) are available during busy periods.

At present, the Chongqing North Railway Station is not open all day. The first bullet train leaves for Chengdu at 8:00 AM. The last train at night is the fast train departing to Hangzhou at 23:59 in the evening.

What is the best way to go to Chongqing city center from Chongqing North Railway station
Dear Eugenio Suria,

There is no direct bus to get there. I suggest you take a taxi. It is about 8 km and it takes about 20-30 minutes. It will cost about CNY30-50(US$5-8)per car. Lussie Lu Replied on 04:16 AM Sep. 02 2011
