The Qingdao-Jinan Passenger Railway, or Jiaoji Passenger Railway (simplified Chinese: 胶济客运专线; traditional Chinese: 膠濟客運專線; pinyin: Jiāo-Jì Kèyùn Zhuān Xiàn), is a high-speed railway in China, running from Jinan to Qingdao at 250 km/h (160 mph).[1] "Jiao" in its short name is a reference to the Jiaozhou Bay region, where Qingdao is located; "Ji" refers to Jinan.

Connecting at Jinan with the Beijing–Shanghai High-Speed Railway, the Qingdao-Jinan line offers direct high-speed (G- and D-series) train service from Qingdao to both Beijing South and Shanghai.
