Soon, visitors will have the chance to experience the maglev train once they get out of the west train station in Zhangjiajie. This maglev train will have a max traveling speed of about 120 kilometers per hour, and can take 402 passengers at one time. When it starts to operate in the near future, a visitor is allowed to get Wulingyuan directly in 12 minutes, which will save much more time, comparing with the initial one-hour range of drive by bus in the same line.
In April, 2011, Zhangjiajie has already witnessed this exciting moment when Zhangjiajie government signed a cooperation intention document with CSR Corporation Limited in Changsha. They planned to build the first Chinese medium-low speed maglev train operating line in Zhangjiajie. When completed, this line will shoulder visitors’ transportation from the center of Zhangjiajie Cityto Wulingyuan core scenic spot.
