Last month, Hong Kong launched its first high speed rail network connecting mainland China, cutting down journey time between West Kowloon and Guangzhou South from 2 hours to 48 minutes. The Vibrant Express will be the first bullet train to operate in Hong Kong traveling at 200km/h on the Hong Kong side and up to 350km/h on the mainland side.
The train will operate between West Kowloon and Shenzhen/Hong Kong boundary, where it connects to the massive high-speed rail network in mainland China, connecting Hong Kong directly to 44 stations in the mainland including Beijing and Shanghai.
