Currently, there is only one station for passengers to use in Zhangjiakou. It is about 8 kilometers (5 miles) away from the city center, 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Zhangjiakou Ningyuan Airport, and about 55 kilometers (34 miles) from Chongli District.

Chongli District is where the skiing venues will be located for the 2022 Winter Olympics. Travelers can take bus 10 to Zhangjiakou Bus Station (also called North Coach Station) and then take a coach to Chongli District. 

There are two railway stations in Datong. The high-speed trains connect with Datong South Railway Station and the normal-speed trains depart from and arrive at Datong Railway Station.
