According to the Hong Kong Wen Daily on January 20, the Spring Festival Transport in 2019 was officially opened on January 21. Apart from Guangdong, which has been the main battlefield of the national Spring Festival Transport in past years, Hong Kong has also attracted much attention for the first Spring Festival Transport of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-speed Railway. On the 20th, a reporter landed on the website of China Railway 12306 and found that tickets to many popular cities in mainland China were very popular before the Spring Festival. The tickets to Changsha, Wuhan, Guiyang and Kunming were almost sold out. Compared with ticket bookings to these popular cities in Hong Kong and Guangdong, Hong Kongs initial invoices were more one ticket hard to obtain than Guangdongs.
Some Hong Kong people said that Hong Kongs high-speed rail transport in spring was more popular than expected, but the ticket from Guangdong had a higher probability of leak detection.
Guangzhou Railway said that this years Spring Festival is the first Spring Festival for Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong high-speed railway. Hong Kong has connected more than 20 cities in the Mainland through the Mainlands high-speed rail network. It is expected that the number of passengers traveling between Hong Kong and the Mainland by high-speed rail during the Spring Festival will reach a new high.
(Note: The leak detection of train tickets usually means that when the tickets are sold out, someone may refund the tickets for some reason, and the exit tickets will be re-sold in the system; if these sporadic tickets are snapped up, that is, leak detection.
Guangdong has a higher probability of leak detection
It is anticipated that the pre-Festival passenger flow in Hong Kong will mainly consist of Hong Kong returnees for the Spring Festival, mainlanders who go to Hong Kong for shopping before the Festival, and other provincial returnees from Hong Kong under the Pearl River Delta migrant workersscheme. Railway analysts say that due to the first Spring Festival of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-speed Railway, there are not many temporary increase schedules, and temporary passenger trains are mainly put in Guangdong and other main battlefields of Spring Festival transport, so tickets for Hong Kong to start inland cities are expected to be more tight before the festival.
Mr. Wu, a passenger from Changsha, Hunan, told reporters that he had planned to go shopping and play in Hong Kong first, and then directly borrow Hong Kongs Curve Home route. Now it seems that the plan is cut to the waist. Ms. Liu, who is also preparing to return to the countryside of Wuhan for the Spring Festival, said frankly, The first Spring Festival of the Hong Kong High Speed Railway was so popular that it was beyond expectation; now, by contrast, tickets from Shenzhen and Guangzhou are easier todetect leaksthan those from Hong Kong. By contrast, tickets for Wuhan, which started in Hong Kong on February 3, have been sold out. Today, I grabbed the Guangzhou Invoice.
Reporters logged on 12306 website on the morning of February 20 to see that Hong Kong to Wuhan, Guiyang and other high-speed rail tickets have been robbed and empty from January 23 to February 3. On the contrary, there are still leaks in the morning of February 3 when Guangzhou originated from Wuhan. There are a small number of spare tickets all day on February 4, especially the four tickets after 17:24 are relatively sufficient. Guangzhou and Shenzhen started from Guiyang on January 23, 24 and 25, and there were still some tickets left for sale on February 3 and 4, especially at 14 p.m. on the 4th.
Hong Kong and Macao Residence Certificate Purchase Ticket Customs clearance is more easy to use
During the Spring Festival, Hong Kong and Macao residentsresidence permits were also used for the first time. Hong Kong people told reporters that this year, Hong Kong people in Guangdong along the high-speed railway station, the use of residence permits, home card tickets, customs clearance are more convenient than in previous years, such as home card in the self-help plane ticket purchase card machine situation is reduced; and residential card tickets like the mainland resident identity card as smooth, feel better than the past home card, some stations can also use residential card to swipe customs clearance after purchasing tickets.

Since January 21, Guangzhou-Shenzhen Railway, one of the busiest routes in the Dawan District of Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao, has implemented a mobile phone ride at all railway stations without the need to buy tickets in advance and the fear of forgetting identity cards. This is a national precedent. Just brush Alipay on the gate, compare to the face, the system will automatically send ticket information to the passenger cell phone. Hong Kong people will travel widely and deeply in the future. The whole process of code brushing takes only 3 seconds. It is as convenient as taking the subway by train.
It takes only 3 seconds for the whole process of code-brushing. Compared with the process of queuing for tickets, collecting tickets or buying tickets online at the previous window, the process of checking identity cards at the on-site station can save more than 15 minutes per passenger on average.

Hong Kong Railway: Spring Festival Frequency will be increased at West Kowloon Station and Futian Station in Shenzhen
According to Xinhua News Agency on the 21st, after the opening of the Hong Kong section of high-speed rail, the air-rail intermodal transport between Hong Kong airport and high-speed rail has become a new choice for many Chinese working abroad to return home. On the first day of Spring Festival, Zeng Jianjian, who had just got off the plane, put down his bags and small bags with his friends and asked the attendants at West Kowloon Station how to buy tickets. More than 10 people from Hunan, Hebei and Northeast provinces were sent to South Africa by the company.
High-speed rail is so convenient! There are few flights and expensive tickets from South Africa to my old parent Sha. As soon as the high-speed railway opens, we can fly to Hong Kong and take the high-speed railway home from Hong Kong. Zeng Jian said satisfactorily.
Lao Liu was sent to buy tickets among a group of people who had been built. Because there are fewer trains from West Kowloon Station to Wuhan, Beijing and other long-distance stations, Lao Liu purchased high-speed rail tickets from West Kowloon Station to Guangzhou South Station, and then transferred to his hometown Hebei after arriving at Guangzhou South Station.
Lao Liu said that he was afraid that he could not buy the ticket without changing the Hong Kong dollar. He did not expect to pay it in Alipay or WeChat. West Kowloon Station is spacious and bright, with staff guiding us everywhere. It feels good!
In addition, more and more mainland tourists come to Hong Kong to purchase annual goods near the Spring Festival. In order to avoid late congestion, Ms. Lin came to Hong Kong from Shenzhen to collect goods by high-speed rail on the first day of Spring Festival. I often come to Hong Kong. After the opening of the high-speed railway in Hong Kong, I always take the high-speed railway to Hong Kong. Its very convenient to pass theone place, two inspections. Every time I come to West Kowloon Station, I feel so good. Today I get off and hear the New Years music playing in the station. Its very Spring Festival atmosphere.
Hong Kong Railway Company, the operator of the Hong Kong section of the high-speed railway, said that some trains from West Kowloon Station to long-distance stations in the Mainland had been sold out during the Spring Festival. To meet the passenger demand during the Spring Festival Transport, MTR will increase the number of trains between Hong Kong West Kowloon Station and Shenzhen Futian Station from January 31 to February 11.
