This paper examines the time savings due to the improved intercity connections brought by high-speed rail (HSR). Through the example of the Beijing South, Nanjing South, and Tianjin East line, it mesures the time savings due to the improved intercity connections brought by this system. It goes on to investigate the user friendliness of HSR by measuring the total door-to-door travel time and accessibility. On the basis of data gathered from questionnaire surveys and from total travel time estimations, it is argued that the poor accessibility of HSR stations hinders the effectiveness of the HSR system
