Dont forget the leak detection node

Every year, eleven train tickets make complaints about the phenomenon of second light. But in fact, even if there is no first time to grab the tickets, there are still many opportunities to pick up leaks.

30 minutes after the sale, if any passenger fails to pay in time, the ticket will be returned to the system for sale;

15 days before driving is the peak of refund;

48 hours and 24 hours before driving, the system will release some remaining tickets;

Generally, 22:00 to 23:00 is the peak of refund;

Each stop has a certain proportion of allocated tickets. If there are any unsold tickets, the remaining tickets will be sold again the day before driving.

We should not relax the epidemic prevention during the holidays!

The National Day holiday also brought about large-scale population movements.

Under the special background that the epidemic situation has not yet completely ended, the railway and tourism departments dare not relax their efforts in epidemic prevention during the National Day holiday this year.

As a matter of fact, the railway department has already had experience in dealing with the May Day holiday, the Dragon Boat Festival holiday and the summer transportation, and the prevention and control network is constantly improving.

For example, as early as the May Day holiday, China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group Co., Ltd. took a number of measures to prevent and control the epidemic situation and provide passenger transport services. In Shanghai, Shanghai Hongqiao, Fuyang, Fuyang West and other stations, infrared thermometer is used to detect the temperature of passengers entering and leaving the station, and the temperature measurement channels are added in time according to the passenger flow.

In terms of scenic spots, such measures as appointment and flow restriction have become the norm.

For example, in Hubei, every scenic spot should make an appointment according to the opening requirements of limit, appointment and staggered peak, and make an appointment every day according to 50% of the approved daily maximum carrying capacity.

The Department of culture and tourism of Shanxi Province has also issued a reminder: according to the requirements of national epidemic prevention and control normalization, the majority of tourists must make an appointment first and then travel, and timely call the scenic spots to learn about the relevant ticket policies, booking procedures, epidemic prevention and control requirements, passenger flow and surrounding traffic conditions.
