Construction on the 859-km Datong-Xi'an high-speed rail began in 2009. The travel time between the two cities is slashed to about six hours from the previous 16 hours with the launch of the new service.

A section of the railway, between Xi'an and Taiyuan, capital of Shanxi, began service in 2014, and has handled over 93 million passengers so far.
