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) following the Qingdao–Jinan Railway. "Jiao" in its short name is a reference to the Jiaozhou Bay region, where Qingdao is located; "Ji" refers to Jinan. The line opened in 2008, with the goal to further separate passenger and freight services on the congested Qingdao–Jinan Railway and provide extra capacity.
