Summary

The line connects, and terminates at, the cities of Changchun and Jilin. The entire line spans 111 km (69 mi) and was built at a cost of RMB 9.6 billion. Construction began on May 13, 2007, and the line was officially open to the public on January 11, 2011. The operational speed of the network is 250 km/h, which means that travel between the two cities now takes about 29 minutes, down from the previous 1.5 hours. The line also services Changchun Longjia International Airport, which is nine minutes from Changchun station and 22 minutes from Jilin station.

Stations

The network has seven stops, of which three are operational, two are scheduled to be operational and two are reserved for future operations. The stations are:

Ticketing

All currently operational stations have both manned ticket booths and ticket vending machines. As of June 2011, the ticket vending machines can only accept cash (fourth and fifth series renminbi banknotes in denominations ¥5, ¥10, ¥20, ¥50 and ¥100 only, no coins) as payment.
