Railway Corporation announces big news to be promoted nationwide next year

By train, I fear queuing for tickets.

Once it meets its peak,

Minutes were delayed.

There's no love in life!


Recently, Lu Dongfu, secretary and general manager of the Party Leadership Group of China Railway Corporation, announced at the Forum on the Development of Intelligent High Speed Railway and the Tenth Anniversary of the Opening of Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway that electronic tickets will be widely promoted in the whole country next year. On November 22, the reporter learned from China Railway Corporation that the Railway Department has implemented the electronic passenger ticket service in Hainan Circum-Island High-speed Railway Pilot Station with ID Card Brushing and Code Sweeping! What is an e-ticket?

After ordering tickets through the internet, passengers arrive at the high-speed railway station without having to exchange paper tickets. They can directly take the valid ID cards such as the second generation ID cards through the entrance and ticket-checking locomotive.

That is to say, ID card and mobile phone are your national pass card!

Of course, if you buy tickets at the station, you can get a ticket information sheet. It's a little like a supermarket ticket, which records the number of tickets, seats and other information, but it's not a travel certificate.

This time, not only will the high-speed rail tickets be cancelled completely, but most of the first and second-tier cities will open Brush Face to enter the high-speed rail station at the same time!

Even if you don't have your ID card, it's okay. Before entering the station, you can take a look at the "face recognition" machine in the face brushing fast lane, and then you can enter the station directly.

It is reported that at present, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, Wuhan and most other first-and second-tier cities have supported the fast service of face brushing.

What about reimbursement?

Regardless of the channel through which tickets are purchased, passengers will receive the electronic ticket notification from the railway department after successful ticket purchase, and they can choose whether to print reimbursement vouchers or not according to their needs.

Passengers can print reimbursement vouchers at ticket window and self-service ticket machine. The valid print deadline is within 30 days after taking the train.

The reimbursement voucher looks like a paper ticket. Unlike a paper ticket, it says "only for reimbursement" and has no specific seat information. How to use electronic tickets?

Passengers only need ID cards when entering and checking tickets. Therefore, if passengers do not print ticket purchase information sheets and reimbursement vouchers, it will not affect the station boarding.

In addition to the second generation ID cards, aliens'residence cards, Hong Kong and Macao residents' passes to and from the Mainland and Taiwan residents'passes to and from the Mainland can also be directly brushed to check in and get on the train.

What are the four generations of train tickets?

First generation: cardboard train tickets

It began in the 1940s and ended in the 1990s.

Second Generation: Flexible Paper Railway Tickets

In 1997, "cardboard ticket" was replaced by "soft paper ticket". One-dimensional code was printed on the light pink ticket. Since December 10, 2009, the one-dimensional bar code of soft paper tickets has been changed to the two-dimensional bar code anti-counterfeiting system.

Third Generation: The magnetic media train ticket was introduced on July 1, 2007. It uses magnetic media to record ticket information and can be used in self-service ticket checking machine.

Fourth Generation: Paperless Railway Ticket-Identity Card
