More About The Bullet Train
The basic aim of the bullet train is to make travel easier and faster than a regular train and more affordable than a flight ticket. Although, business class tickets will be priced higher, there will be only one business class coach for 9 economy coaches (10 total coaches). The average ticket fare will be slightly higher than the AC first class train fare, but definitely lower than a flight ticket.
