"Star of North Xinjiang", the intercity train between Karamay and Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, has brought the two cities more convenience and opportunities.

Starting running on May 1 2014, the train cuts the travel time to four hours. Every day, there are three trains running in both directions between Karamay and Urumqi.

A ticket for a second-class seat on the intercity train costs 54.5 yuan ($8.7), half the price of a long distance bus ticket. The reasonable price makes "Star of North Xinjiang" the best choice for people in these two cities who want to travel.

The "Star of North Xinjiang" intercity train can reach a speed of 140 kilometers per hour and carry 880 passengers. [Photo/epaper.kelamayi.com.cn]
