How to Transfer in the Same Station Quickly

When arriving at and departing from the same station, you can transfer directly between the trains within the station and go straight to the waiting hall for your next train. There is no need to go outside the station and do the security check again.

You can find the "Transfer (直接换乘)" signs on the ground or around the platforms, then follow them to reach the waiting hall. It is better to have the next train’s schedule to hand so that you can show it to a staff member if you need help.
