Beijing's first auto train ready to serve

created: 2014-09-22

Many people have the idea of traveling around another city in their very own car. To do this, besides taking a long-distance drive with its accompanying traffic congestion and stress, people in Beijing now have another option to take their car to a destination: by having their vehicles transported by rail.

According to the Beijing Railway Bureau, the first auto train is scheduled to serve the route between Beijing and Hangzhou in East China's Zhejiang province, for the upcoming one-week National Day holiday. 

Car owners will take a separate train along with the auto train to arrive at the destination. The railway bureau said that insurance would be offered for each car to insure its safety during transportation.
