The Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway is to open to public soon.

China's railway ministry announced the trial prices for the Beijing-Shanghai bullet trains on July 23, 2011.

Tickets for trips on trains running at 300 kph will be sold between 555 yuan (85.6 U.S. dollars) for second-class seats and 1,750 yuan for business class. Tickets for journeys on 250-kph trains will be priced from 410 yuan for second-class seats to 650 yuan for first-class.

There will be 63 pairs of trains with the speed of 300 kph every day, cutting travel time to 4 hours and 48 minutes. The additional 27 pairs of trains running 250 kph will complete the trip in about 8 hours, 2 hours shorter than the current high-speed trains.

The 1,318-kilometer rail will go into commercial service at the end of this month, after trial operations that began May 11.
