Outside food delivery starts soon on some bullet trains
    2017-July-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

PASSENGERS on some Chinese bullet trains will be able to order food online from restaurants and have it delivered to their seats starting Monday, as the railway operator looks to diversify meal choices.

The China Railway Corp. ticket-booking website and app will allow users who intend to pass through selected stations to preorder meals, either from the train’s catering service or partner businesses, such as KFC.

Initially, the service will be available at 27 high-speed rail stations in 24 cities, mainly provincial capitals and major metropolises including Shanghai, Tianjin, Zhengzhou, Guangzhou and Nanjing.

“The move aims to meet the diverse and individualized demands of passengers, introducing more brands and restaurants, diversifying meal choices on the train and providing richer and better services to benefit passengers,” the State-owned network operator said in a statement Tuesday.

Prices for meals and delivery will be set by food providers, the statement added, while train attendants will take the food to passengers in their seats.

Several outlets are already listed online for some bullet train routes, although the ordering service is not yet available. Based on the information provided, prices appear similar to other food delivery apps.

For example, KFC is one of the three restaurants listed at Jinan West Station for passengers on the G113 train between Beijing and Shanghai. The price for a side of mashed potatoes is 7 yuan ($1), with an 8 yuan delivery fee. On the fast-food company’s own website, the cost is 6 yuan and 9 yuan, respectively.

CRC said only approved brands will be allowed to list their products on the website and app.
