High-speed train service between Hong Kong and Guangdong province will be extended to four more cities starting on Wednesday, according to the operator, the Hong Kong MTR Corporation.

The new service will cover the four cities of Jiangmen, Yangjiang, Maoming and Zhanjiang, with five new destinations in the western part of Guangdong province, according to an announcement issued recently by MTR.

The new service is scheduled to provide one pair of southbound and northbound trains each day. Passengers can proceed with the exit and entry customs clearance procedures after they arrive at the West Kowloon Station in Hong Kong, no matter which station they enter from.

Additionally, train services between the West Kowloon Station and Guangzhou East Station in Guangzhou and Futian Station in Shenzhen will be increased starting on Wednesday.

The number of daily train runs to Guangzhou East will increase to 20, and the departure time of the last southbound train will be extended from the current 6:45 pm to 8:18 pm from Guangzhou East, offering greater convenience to passengers traveling in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.

With a growing demand for cross-boundary travel, high-speed rail in Hong Kong set a record by serving nearly 2.5 million passengers during the August summer holiday period, according to MTR.
