China Unveils New Train Ticket Policy

(CRI) China's railway authorities have announced new measures aimed at facilitating train ticket buyers.

According to the new policies, starting from Friday, people will be able to book tickets during 21 time periods between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Previously, the number of time periods was 16.

Each period will last 30 minutes, with new tickets available in different railway stations across the country. Tickets for regular and hi-speed trains will be sold together.

The adjustment is applied to bo th online and telephone ticket reservations.

To buy a ticket on, China's official train ticket website, is always a headache for anxious travelers during public holidays, especially the New Year Period. Tickets for popular routes could be snapped up within seconds, and problems concerning website access are common due to the huge number of visitors.

During the Chinese New Year period in early 2014, the railway system transported about 260 million people between cities where they work and their hometowns.
